    and brought home a cutting to photograph closer.

    These tiny, brown seeds

    produced sprouts with red,

    yellow, orange, green and

    While the seedlings were

    growing on my porch, I

    found that the original planthad managed to produce a

    second crop.

    As I searched the internet, however, I found blogs and plant forumsfilled with references and photographs about its spectacular foliage

    and value as a dietary staple.

    The variety of H. acetosellathat Ifound growing wild near my

    home in Palm Beach Gardens,

    Florida, does not appear to

    belong to any of the mostcommon H. acetosellacultivars

    indicated by the difference in leaf

    shape, colour, and texture.

    Even though H. acetosella is easily maintained and offers bright foliage

    colour, it usually lacks huge, showy flowers. H. acetosellais a hardierplant than most varieties of hibiscus available to the amateur gardener.

    As far north as Minnesota, plant bloggers publish glowing praise and post

    beautiful photographs of the HaightAshbury, Sugar Maple, and Red

    Shield varieties they have planted in their yards.

    For them, H. acetosellas durability more than makes up for theinconsequential bloomsor the complete lack of bloomson these

    plants. Avid gardeners trade cuttings or purchase them in the spring to

    transfer directly into plant beds. I could not find seeds for sale on line.
