I wanted to know more about the type of hibiscus that is often found in herbal teas. I found that it is a plant often called sorrel, roselle, and even Florida cranberry.
Here's a website with photos:

And a website with a nice video:

So... now that i know what it is called, i of course want to find out if i can grow it myself...
Looks possible, but it needs a lot of room... 3 foot spacing minimum- but it can be container grown. I think if i decide to try it, i'll go with the container option. I have a nice 30 gallon rubber tub that i could fill with soil.
