Lake Fred

Lake Fred is an actual lake located in the flat pinelands of southern New Jersey. It is also one of my knicknames acquired while I was at college. There is (or was) a Lake Fred Folk Festival in the springtime.

Night Runner - Best Of Show Seedling

We attended the May 7, 2006 Baton Rouge Hibiscus Show. This beautiful bloom won the coveted Best Of Show Seedling Award which puts this bloom in the Hibiscus of the Year Award race four years down the road. Night Runner was grown and submitted by Bobby and Bootsie Dupont, who won the 2005 Hibiscus of the Year with Black Dragon. This flower's parentage is Rum Runner and Night Fire, two plants that we owned previously, that are now growing in heaven. This photo does not truly represent the colors which were deeper and darker. This is a striking bloom that has every right to be a strong contender for Hibiscus of the Year.
