You might have seen this plant around Florida, but have you ever had a fresh Roselle flower in your tea? Whether it’s hot or cold, you can enjoy your favorite plant in your favorite drink!
Although originally from parts of Africa, Roselle is a popular plant in Florida and even in the Caribbean. In fact, in the Caribbean, hibiscus is used as a special Christmas drink. It also does well in climates like India. Roselle is usually planted around August in Florida, and it appreciates well-drained soil and water during droughts. Around October and November, the calyces (the flowers) are nice and plump and are perfect for picking. (1)
