This is a new one to me.
I don't know Roselles, they're pretty :)
Is it a perennial, Autumn ?

Louise, I'm not sure whether Roselles are Annuals or perennial. Roselles belong to the hibiscus family, just like Okra. But Okras are annuals and my other hibiscus are perennials.

Roselles are supposed to be good for health though. According to a website, here's what it says :

The plant is considered to have antihypertensive properties. Roselle, has been used in folk medicine as a diuretic, and treatment for cardiac and nerve diseases and cancer
