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? Fun plant.

What are the cons? Not as easy to grow indoors

Review:

A Roselle reviewer wrote: "Huge bush, all leaves, no flowers. Fertilized with bloom booster, something like 5-34-22. 9 months old. You need to research these and get one that's not so day length sensitive." Several years ago we grew Roselle and, utilizing either fish emulsion/liquid seaweed or an organic granular fertilizer, we did not notice a paucity of blooms. As we will be starting some Roselle for folks on request in spring 2019, we were looking around on the internet and noticed that one site said the following: "Hidden Valley Hibiscus recommends a 17N - 5P - 24K fertilizer. The most critical aspect of the fertilizer is that the phosphorus content is low. Too much phosphorus can sicken a hibiscus in a matter of a couple weeks." Maybe the person using the 5-34-22 was simply adding too much phosphorus!?!

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.
