This gorgeous large burgundy flowered hibiscus has another reason to love it! It has edible leaves! The young leaves are actually tasty with a zesty lemony taste. The young leaves are perfect in salads or may be cooked up like a tangy spinach. The flower that this plant produces is deep burgundy and the plant in full flower is a show stopper. This hibiscus will thrive in warm and hot climates as long as it gets adequate moisture. If okra grows where you are this will do just fine!
