  • To say I am pleased with the J Berry line of plants is an understatement. All of my selections have THRIVED and performed beyond my wildest dreams.  I have already started including both Hollywood  and Summer Spice Hibiscus into my national Foodscape presentations.

  • As a tropical hibiscus lover who lives in the north where they aren't easy, Hollywood Hibiscus are for me. For me, these are no-care plants that jazz up our pool area and garner a lot of oohs and ahhs from summer visitors.

  • The premium retail Hollywood Hibiscus commands translates to better margins for retailers, without sacrificing turns. Stores are not getting larger, and there is competition for space. It makes sense from a retailer's perspective to devote more real estate to Hollywood Hibiscus.

  • We have high Hollywood standards, and will continue to lead the industry in innovation. Hollywood Hibiscus provide savings at production for the grower, faster and more profitable turns at retail, and consumer engagement and success in the real world garden.

  • J Berry Nursery has some great stuff! I am very happy with everything I've received from them this year!
