Well-loved by Aussies for making jams, sauces, syrups, drinks and vitamin-rich teas. This is the plant form; we also have rosella seeds in our seeds and bulbs category.

Hibiscus sabdariffa - rosella

DESCRIPTION: Bushy West African tropical perennial with reddish leaves, pale pink hibiscus flowers in spring, followed by red calyx pods in summer used for teas and edible produce.
USE IN: Plant as a flowering hedge that can be clipped to 1m - 3m (though heavy regular clipping will remove buds); a feature shrub, a container plant.

PLANTING: For best results plant in rich, well-drained soil somewhere sunny; plants need 5 months frost-free to fruit. Can grow to 1.5m in just a few months.
CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and continue to provide water throughout he growing season. Mulch plants to keep the roots cool in summer. Plants will flower twice - once in spring, and again in autumn which provides the best harvest of calyces. These develop about 3-4 weeks after the flowers; snip off to use when they're just fatter than your thumb.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 2m H x 1m W.
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, young healthy plants with tnew roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
