Australian Native Rosella Plants


Hibiscus heterophyllus

2 in stock


Hibiscus heterophyllus
Medium rainforest shrub 3 to 6 metres in the wild but takes a seasonal prune very well to keep it in shape.
Large pale white to yellow to pinkish blooms with maroon centre.

Easily trimmed to suit front or back yard.

This Native shrub is NOT the African Rosella (Hibiscus sabdariffa) that is often called Bush Tucker but does not grow naturally or accidentally in the bush, has not been used by Native Australians as a food source and after 30 years of bush-walking I can honestly say I have never seen it growing anywhere except in someones back garden.

This Rosella (Hibiscus heterophyllus) has shoots, leaves, roots and  flowers that can be eaten either raw or cooked.

PLEASE NOTE: We cannot send live plants outside Australia, to Western Australia or Tasmania.
