Thai Red Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa) is a versatile addition to your garden, boasting beautiful 3-5 ft. plants with striking red stems and leaf veins. The bright red calyxes of this variety can be used to make "zingy" tea, sauce, syrup, or jam, or even candied whole for a unique treat. For strongly flavored teas, simmer for 10-20 minutes. Historically known as "Florida cranberry" in the 1890s, this plant offers edible flowers and young leaves with a citrus tang, perfect for use in Burmese cooking!

Space plants 3-6 ft. apart to maximize calyx ripening; wider spacing encourages more abundant yields. Thai Red Roselle is the only variety in several trials to begin flowering by mid-summer in Virginia.
