Remember I posted 2 recipes using Roselle 洛神花）to make cupcake and jelly? Just to try my luck I stuffed the roselle seeds in the pot. It is not difficult to grow at all. I didn't add any fertilizer but let it grow in full sunlight, watering them regularly and after 6 months, my Roselle plant is taller than me and blooming to pretty pink flowers with striking red calyxes. Roselle flower open as light yellow in colour and later change to gorgeous pink before they wither off by mid afternoon. Despite its short life span, about a year or so, it is very productive. Regular harvesting will lead to a better yield. When fruits remain uncollected and are left to mature, the plant will eventually die faster.
Can't wait to share with you this beautiful Roselle plant taken in my garden.
This is my favourite hibiscus, simply love the beautiful orange pink colour. Always make my day!
Does anyone knows the name of this plant?
