    Pete, where can I get some of these? Would they make a decent hedge around a small fence. I bought a Venus Mango and Strawberry Tree from you at Green Thumb and they are looking good. Just thinking 3-4 of these would go well too.

    Oh my gosh!! I just dug mine up and separated it. I didn't know they were edible!! That is awesome.

    Thanks Pete for keeping on from the Justin Rhodes challenge. You are an awesome teacher for all this information.
    Appreciate you sharing all this info and plant insights. I'm in zone 6 but, still enjoy your videos and presentations.

  • Pete…I had to travel out to Superior here 60 + minutes out for me here in Arizona to the reknowned Boyce Thompson Arboretum ~ 8yr or so yrs ago to find a Turks Cap at the time….though now slightly more common again…Your previous video reminded me that they were edible…had once heard but completely forgotten that ! So great stuff ! So many great edibles in the Mallow family…Directed a few people to your site yesterday, including a nice lady that runs a Home Depot nursery here…

    I have two huge turks cap bushes (Pink/Red) and never knew! Just went outside to taste! I am so tickled they are yummy. Thank you! Twice you have made reference to children's gardens in your vids. Have you made one? Love to hear.

    I like to drink hibiscus herbal tea but I had my Mom try some (unsweetened) and it gave her a very fast acting sugar crash (she is hypoglycemic). I have no idea why it affected her that way!

    I have a grafted ( is that a word?) hibiscus. It gives me red flowers and also yellow ones. Hummingbirds love them. I believe Rosella is the best one for tea. Also great for jam and ice cream. Turtles LOVE those flowers too
