Thai Red Roselle

(Hibiscus sabdariffa) A valuable plant for making cranberry-flavored bright red beverages, jelly, pie and tea. Much grown in Asia and the mid-east as the flavor is wonderful. A tasty sauce can be made by boiling and sweetening the fleshy calyxes; the leaves are also used to make a drink. The entire plant of this Hibiscus is red and very beautiful. Start early, unless you live in the far-south. Citrus-flavored flowers are delicious on frozen deserts. This plant has too many uses to name here. Collected in Thailand.

What are the pros? Amazing taste, beautiful plant

What are the cons? Can be hard to germinate

Review:

I live in the Pacific Northwest, so we have a bit of a short growing season. I was hoping to keep the plants alive in my greenhouse all year round, but it got too cold for them. I sprouted mine on a heated seedling mat in January, by the time I set them out in June (in pots) they were almost ten feet tall! Beautiful flowers, they make AMAZING tea. Can be challenging to sprout, but totally worth it even if you only get one. I have ordered them several times, and will keep buying them!

What are the pros? Love the leaves for tea

What are the cons? This year's batch were duds

Review:

Third year to grow these amazing plants. I even doubled up my order. I only got 3 scrawny plants. I'm pretty sure they were inferior since I did nothing different from the two previous years :(

What are the pros? hardy, great harvest/ flavor

What are the cons? none

Review:

75% Germination here in our humid weather. I water infrequently, but it thrives. Once the plant took off and was about ten inches tall it started forming the calyxes. Now it is five feet tall and I've harvested at least 8 times. HUGE calyxes! The plant even split in half during a strong tropical storm and it survived and is still thriving. I have been able to make my very own delicious hibiscus tea. The young leaves are also very lemony and good in salads. I am about to put 10 more plants in the ground!

What are the pros? At least I have two

What are the cons? Will need to try again

Review:

Not sure why - but I only have 2 seedlings. Should have planted them directly in the ground. I'm sure it's me and not the seeds. Will try again.
