You're right, Bamira. Smiling This is not H. sabdariffa. Roberduval14 isn't active on the site anymore, so I'll delete the photo later on today, after everyone has had a chance to see my response.

Zuzu, it looks like Hibiscus acetocella Red-Leaf Hibiscus (Hibiscus acetosella) to me. I have lots of it, as it seeds itself all over my back yard here.
