Plant of the Month: ‘Mahogany Splendor’ hibiscus - West Hawaii Today
This red-leafed hibiscus is a fast growing perennial shrub here in Hawaii. It can grow to nearly 6 feet and 3 feet wide in a single season under ideal conditions. The deeply lobed mahogany leaves can be almost 4 inches across, have serrated edges and are similar in appearance to those of the Japanese maple. The flowers are usually a very deep red though some species produce a pink flower with red veins.
The flowers only last a single day, usually opening early in the morning and closing by noon. The blooms open toward the end of a branch opening successively leaving behind a deep red pointed calyx. The sturdy branches with red their leaves, flowers and series of dried calyx are often used to add interest and color to floral arrangements.
Though Hibiscus acetosella can be grown in groups as a hedging plant, it can also serve singly as a specimen plant adding color and texture to your garden. Though it is neither wind nor salt tolerant, it is a vigorous, drought and heat-tolerant plant that also grows well in containers.
It grows best in full sun. In shady locations, it will grow well but the foliage will likely lose the red brilliance that full sun encourages. This hibiscus likes a moist, slightly acid soil of between pH 5.8 and 6.5. .
Propagating “Mahogany Splendor” is fairly simple. It can be done from cuttings or seeds. To start from seeds, collect them from the dried calyx that appears on the stem following (and below) the flowers. The seeds should shake out easily. To hasten germination you can soak the seeds overnight in warm water then nick them with a razor blade before sowing.
Sow the seeds in small pots or seedling trays using a potting mix that drains well. Cover the seed lightly and keep the medium moist, but not wet. Viable seeds should germinate within two weeks.
Once the seedlings have several sets of true leaves, the young plants can be moved to larger pots or to a protected place in the garden and get light fertilization. Introduce them to full sun gradually over several days before planting out.
For vegetative propagation, take cuttings from branch ends 4 to 6 inches long. Dip them in a rooting compound and then place them in a medium that drains well. A 50/50 mix of perlite and vermiculite works well. Once they start putting out new leaves you can treat them like seedlings.
With adequate water and a location in full sun, “Mahogany Splendor” needs almost no care to keep it happy. You can prune to control size and shape and to preserve its bushy growth habit. Keeping this hibiscus fairly compact will encourage flowering and help maintain its attractive appearance. Regular fertilization is also recommended. Applying a balanced fertilizer three or four times a year should be adequate.
Though it may be occasionally attacked by insects like Chinese rose beetle or white fly, lox tox remedies are usually adequate to control them. Overall, keeping your plant healthy will discourage insect or disease attacks.
Red-leaved hibiscus plants can be found at some local nurseries or requested through Margo Lundstrom (formerly of Sunrise Nursery) at 640-9191. If you know someone who... Feb 27, 2020

Cantor Hans Cohn
May 31, 1926–Jan. 4, 2020
Cantor Hans Cohn
Cantor Hans Cohn passed away surrounded by his loving family on January 4, 2020 at the age of 93 in Redwood City, California. He led an extraordinary life.
Hans was born on May 31, 1926, in Berlin, Germany. His first years were lived happily with his parents who owned a small women’s clothing shop. As Hitler came to power, his life drastically changed. His synagogue where he attended school was torched on Kristallnacht. As soon as they could, his family escaped to Shanghai, where he lived for seven years. His mother died within five months of their arrival.
During the years in Shanghai (from ages 11 to 19) he experienced hunger, poverty and death around him, yet he still managed to have his bar mitzvah and take singing lessons. He had to drop out of school to get a job, but he learned to be an expert cook, working in restaurants. When the war was over, he stowed away on a ship to Australia. He was caught but managed to slip away and live as an undocumented person under the name Johnny Corn. Finally, he turned himself in and with the help of the Jewish community avoided jail time and was able to leave for the U.S.
In Los Angeles, he worked as a chef until he was drafted into the Army at Fort Ord. As a soldier, he drove the Army bus to take enlisted Jews to a synagogue in Salinas, where he met his wife, Eva, our mother. Once his enlistment was over, they married and remained in Carmel where they opened a gourmet French restaurant, Le Coq D’Or. However, his heart was in music and Jewish life, so he took Eva, who was pregnant, and their two small children to New York to study to become a Cantor. Five years later, after graduation, he spent two years as Cantor in South Bend, Indiana. Then the family moved to Palo Alto, California, where he served as Cantor at Congregation Beth Jacob in Redwood City with Rabbi Teitelbaum for over three decades. He earned a master’s degree from Stanford and an honorary doctorate from Hebrew Union College.
In the ’90s, he was diagnosed with throat cancer, but after two successful surgeries, he was able to live cancer-free for many years. Sadly, his voice was greatly impacted, and he was no longer able to eat normally. Yet, in retirement, he led services for Jewish holidays on cruises. He lost Eva to lung cancer shortly after their 50th anniversary. As part of his healing process, he published his autobiography, “Risen from the Ashes, Tales of a Musical Messenger,” which aptly describes his great courage and indomi... Feb 1, 2020
Downey Rose Parade flowers lead to a trail of aloha - The Downey Patriot
Downey since forever. Little did I expect the flowers would become a trail of Aloha.As I drove past Exotic Hawaiian Apparel, their windows in Firestone Boulevard were empty and when I turned into the back lot, the door was locked. Peering inside I could see the store was completely empty. No ruffled Island floral frocks, no colorful outfits for little keikis, no authentic vintage outrigger canoe hanging for the ceiling. When I had talked with owner Martin Orloff for this paper (June, 2019), he and his wife had said there was a new owner for the building. Their lease was up for renewal and they anticipated a possible move, if prices were too high. The showrooms that day were filled – stuffed – with so many items that Martin’s parents, who founded the business in the 1960’s, had brought back from Hawaii. Where did all those good things go?I drove into the back parking lot of Art’s Camera, the western bookend of the same row of shops, which covers a half-block on the south side of Firestone, between Paramount and Myrtle.The door was open, customers were browsing, and as always owner Art Valencia was standing behind the counter. Art has been here since he opened in the 90’s, offering advice to gifted amateurs and helping seniors cope with new mechanisms. I gave him a spray of purple cymbidium. “Lovely,” said Art, “I’ll give them to my wife.” ...
