New Hibiscus Index: HMMA takes the place of Moorea


Starting February, 1st, 2014, the new index for Moorea cultivars, creations of Master Charles Atiu, is HMMA.  If you ask yourselves why Master Atiu did this change, the answer is simple. He wanted to decongest the letter “M”, from Moorea, on the International Hibiscus Society site (Search Engine), as long as he prepares a new collection of hibiscuses counting around 10,000 cultivars!

Some of the newest and yet amazing cultivars HMMA –  under the brand Charles Atiu, were already registered and posted on IHS site, at letter H ( )

Enclosed for your viewing pleasure, just a few of them:
