Ribena flower 洛神花 ...


The pink flower of the roselle plant 
that looks like a small hibiscus. 
To make the original Ribena drink
...
It is grown in low-land tropics,
so there is an abundance of these plants in Malaysia
...
To make the original Ribena drink, 
the fruits of the blackcurrant are used
...
If you come across this drink offering
from the actual fruit from the plant,
you should try it
...

My Roselle plants are growing in abundance in my back yard and i drink the juice from time to time. It's a great home remedy for good health.

btw, are you from Sg Petani?
