Red Roselle

A super plant for making cranberryflavored bright red beverages, jelly, pie, and tea. Much is grown in Asia, tropical America and the Mideast, 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 plant is red and very beautiful. Start very early indoors, unless you live in the far South. Citrus-flavored flowers are delicious on frozen desserts. This plant has too many uses to name here.

What are the pros? Plentiful and beautiful

What are the cons? Need stakes to keep upright

Review:

I’ve read most of the reviews and it seems that light sensitivity is an issue. The first year I grew them up against my trellised raised beds. They only got two hours of direct light then mottled lighting throughout the day. They produced quickly. I only had three plants back then. The winters in Texas killed them off. I now grow them in Seguin and I have six plants. I have them growing in the front yard up close to our house that faces south. They get more sun than my previous plants but they still produced fairly quickly. I think I got buds in August and I think that was because I had them in pots for too long during a move.

What are the pros? Everything!

What are the cons? None, but has a long season.

Review:

This plant is beautiful, easy to germinate and grow during our low hot grow season. Planted in March and is now flowering in late August. Mine is pushing 8ft tall and has had issues of falling over so they had to be tied back. I just adore this plant and it’s medicinal values are unlimited.

Roselle

What are the pros? Beautiful Hibiscus. Edible

What are the cons? Long season. Started indoors.

Review:

Love the beautiful flowers but if your growing for the beauty try something else. If your looking for Roselle to use in tea, jams, jelly, drinks, it is Worth the wait.

Review:

These plants are so beautiful in the garden, and are producing calyxes like crazy. So far we just use them to make a very nice, nutritious tea, but I can see how jam, chutney, or mock cranberry sauce would also be amazing. This tea is said to be high in iron and other wonderful nutrients. I live on the Big Island of Hawaii, Puna, 700 foot elevation. A lot of standard garden fruits and veggies are challenging to grow here, due to crazy amounts of insects, high humidity, tons of rain, etc. Not this one! It grows like a weed and does great. I am am going to plant many more of these.

Astounded It Grows Here
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Withstands harsh sun

What are the cons? Can be a little "buggy"

Review:

I planted this when we moved out here, not sure whether or not it would grow. Then I watched in helpless horror as every other tea-type flower I planted in my dedicated tea garden burned, wilted, shriveled, turned to dust and blew away in the incessant wind. Not the roselle though. It grew. Then it grew some more. It created a shade barrier and I was able to late plant a bergamot that survived in the blessed shade. I don't know how many seedlings survived, because it is currently a big bushy uncontrolled GORGEOUS mass in my garden, but it is less than a year old and producing hundreds of calyxes. I've already made a pint of jelly, and it's still chugging away. Next year, I am putting more of these guys in. Not only are they lovely and useful (seriously y'all, roselle jam is amazing stuff) but they're great shields for extreme sun and wind.
