Sunset Hibiscus

I got the seeds for this Sunset Hibiscus (Abelmoschus Manihot) earlier this year from a lady from the GCS forum. It took me a while to grow them because my garden was undergoing some changes.

I germinated these seeds and then promptly forgot what they were. Well, finally the flower bloomed and I realised what they were - edible sunset hibiscus. The leaves and flowers of this hibiscus can be eaten either raw in salads or cooked. Such a useful and elegant looking plant!

See here for more useful information about this plant.
