Is anyone familiar with Auntie Lilli's hibiscus? It is supposed to be an edible type with variegated leaves. Looking to find one. TIA

I received my passion vine. Very small root ball but has a healthy plant up top that was about six inches.

Auntie Lilli's is not actually a Hibiscus. It's a cultivar of Abelmoscus manihot which is the same genus as Okra (Abelmoscus esculentus) so I would think that it would be edible.
