Hibiscus sabdariffa var altissima (H. cannabinus)

False Jamaica Sorrel, False Roselle

A hybrid perennial hibiscus (at least we think so), the name is unclear, but can be used for making tea. For tea the flower petals are used, first dried and then adding boiling water until it turns red and then add sugar to taste. Plants like full sun, get about 5' tall. Super easy to grow, fast during the warm season, evergreen in the tropics, best if tipped to keep bushy. In cooler climates it can go somewhat dormant in the winter, but it can not handle frost. In colder climates it's just grown as an annual. Start with young plants or collected seed in the early spring.
