Hibiscus sabdariffa, commonly known as roselle or red sorrel, is a flowering plant native to West Africa. It is now grown in many parts of the world for its edible calyxes and flowers. The plant grows up to eight feet tall and produces hollyhock-like flowers that are usually pink or red.

Hibiscus sabdariffa plants need warm, tropical climates and well-draining soil to thrive. They require full sun and regular watering, and should be fertilized regularly to encourage growth. In colder climates, hibiscus sabdariffa plants can be grown as annuals or kept as potted plants and brought indoors during the winter.

The calyxes of the flower are harvested for use fresh or dried. They are often made into a refreshing beverage called "hibiscus tea," which is popular in many parts of the world. The calyxes can also be used to make natural dyes.

The plant grows in many tropical and subtropical regions, including Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean. In addition to being used for culinary and decorative purposes, the plant is also grown for its ornamental value and is often used in landscaping and garden design.
