Abelmoschus manihot, Edible Hibiscus: This is a seed pod cracking and a look at how the seeds inside are arranged, as well as what the seeds look like. Easy to harvest; abundant seeds on these plants
The flowers are big and beautiful, very tropical, and the seedheads are nice too. Leave them so as to reseed the plant next year.
The leaves alone on the Sweet Hibiscus are very attractive
