Fancy Hibiscus in Ft. Lauderdale. They've been hybridizing hibiscus since the early 1980's

Forum really for fruit or edibles,that being said I'm with you i just bought from logees.com hibiscus and in the fall of 2015 two jade vines that are blooming now spectacular they have a good strain of the jade vine ,god it's almost blue I was thinking maybe ph or minerals affect the color like hydrangea

I mean, Hibiscus is used in drinks and desserts, so I'd say it's edible.
The hardest plants to grow are often those most worth growing.
