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? Pretty foliage, good screening

What are the cons? Needs long growing season

Review:

Direct sown in July was too late here in Atlanta. It waiting until cool, rainy weather in September to put on a real growth spurt. Pretty foliage, but no flowers. Will start indoors in Spring this year as it obviously needs a longer growing season.

What are the pros? The whole plant is usable

What are the cons? Needs hot short days

Review:

I think it gets too cold here when the days are shorter, as this is a short day plant but loves the heat and humidity. I didn't get to harvest but a couple handfuls of calyxes before frost :( but I chopped down all my plants, about 15 and removed each leaf and tender leaf stem. I dehydrated them and made some AMAZING tea!!!! I will definitely be growing these every year, no matter if they put off buds or not. The leaves are tangy, almost lemony. This is a must for anyone wanting an incognito garden or tea lovers.

What are the pros? Fast grower, beautiful

What are the cons? none

Review:

Purchased these around may, within 2 days they had already sprouted from my container. it's now december and I was able to make cranberry sauce following online recipe on using thai roselle's. The flower is BEAUTIFUL. It blossoms either a white or a pink type of tone. Even the leafs that are about to fall change to a colorful red tone. These were the seeds that won me over and make me a returning customer!

What are the pros? very pretty plant

What are the cons? too far north for flowers

Review:

This plant has grown very easily for me. Unfortunately, we are too far north (central IL) and it has not been hot enough the past two summers for it to flower. The plant itself is beautiful and very hardy, so I will keep trying every year. I have started it from seed indoors in March. Maybe I'll start it earlier next year!

What are the pros? Beautiful colored plant

What are the cons? No flowers for me

Review:

Started one seed indoors in December as I wanted to grow an unusual plant. This plant was about 9 feet tall until my supports failed and severe wind broke the top off. Still it started growing again. Unfortunately, there are not flowers. But it is a beautiful plant. I will be growing more next year.
