Beautiful vinous flowers open in the morning, and by 3-4 pm they convolve into a curious fico-like knot. Flowers cover the bush several times a year. Very similar to Hibiscus acetosella, only with green leaves, this edible hibiscus is rich of vitamin C. All parts of the plant are edible and can be used for delicious tea or in a salad. Very fast growing, forms a large bush in one season. Tolerates dry conditions. Grow your edible landscape in no time!
With proper care and protection, this plant can provide a striking display of color and texture in the garden year after year.
This species is often confused with H. furcellatus and sometimes offered in trade under that name.
