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? 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.

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.

Review:

I have grown these with very good success in San Antonio Texas. They germinated easily. Would recommend. If you are in the hot south this would be an easy one to grow. I started them off with the small seed coco starter pods, then transplanted them in smaller containers. I plan to transplant them in larger containers to allow them to grow more flowers. Full sun.
