Hibiscus
adds color
When does a hibiscus look
like a maple tree? An office vis-
itor brought in a cutting to
identify last week from a low
maintenance shrub with a
dark red three-lobed leaf. A lit-
tle searching showed that this
plant was False Roselle, which
can quickly add a patch of
deep maroon color to your
Florida Yard.

City planners


to review new


housing zones


By Audrey Blackwell
Okeechobee News
Adding a lot to a new pro-
posed apartment complex
northeast of town will be con-
sidered by the City of Okee-
chobee Planning Agency at
their 7 p.m. meeting Tuesday at
city hall.
George Goodbread plans to
build an apartment complex on
property he owns at 110 N.E.
12th St. and wants to add anoth-
er lot to the project. The agency
will consider a recommenda-
tion to the city council to
change the land use designa-
tion from commercial to multi-
family zoning.


The agency is slated to dis-
cuss recommending that the
city council amend Section 9-
345 (4) of the Land Develop-
ment Regulations (LDRs)
specifically related to the maxi-
mum height of structures with-
in the industrial zoning district.
This item will relate to all struc-
tures within the industrial zon-
ing district.
At its June 7 meeting, the city
council voted to delete height
requirements from the deed
restrictions and allow them to
fall under the LDRs on buildings
in the Industrial Park.

Planning Board will meet immedi-
ately following the Planning
Agency meeting.
That board will consider a-
request to rezone property for
land in the Taylor Creek area from
holding to residential single fami-
ly. The application was submitted
on behalf of property owners
David and Anita Nunez.
The reason for the zoning
change is so the property can be
developed by its owners. The
basis for the change is the future

marked for future land use of sin-

"The building official
should evaluate these
concerns before a cer-
tificate of occupancy is
issued."

ing to a report from LaRue Plan-
ning & Management Services, Inc.
The report said that because of
the properties' proximity to Taylor
Creek, it is not known if there will
be any drainage or flooding prob-
lems because of development or
whether the property is part of the
Taylor Creek Drainage Basin.
"The building official should
evaluate these concerns before a
certificate of occupancy is issued,"
the report said.
The planning board will also
consider a rezoning petition from
Mr. Goodbread to rezone a lot
west of 110 N.E. 12th St. from
heavy commercial to residential

Red leafed hibiscus adds color in landscape


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
When does a hibiscus look like
a maple tree? An office visitor
brought in a cutting to identify last
week from a low maintenance
shrub with a dark red three-lobed
leaf. A little searching showed that
this plant was False Roselle, which
can quickly add a patch of deep
maroon color to your Florida Yard.
False Roselle, Maroon mallow,
Red-Shield hibiscus and Cranberry
hibiscus are all different names for
Hibiscus acetosella. A tropical
African native, it has been collected
to the point of disappearing in
those lands. Not only does it have
use as an attractive short-lived flow-
ering perennial in the landscape,
its young leaves and shoots have
been added to salads for color,
cooked with rice or vegetables
because of their slightly acid flavor
and are sometimes used for tea.
One of the challenges about this
plant is that it is confused with
another Hibiscus plant known as
Roselle, sometimes called Florida
Cranberry (H. sabdariffa). Roselle


-.UNIVERSITY OF
TFLORIDA

IFAS EXTENSION

is grown in the tropics for its red
seed pod that is cooked, preserved
or used in teas. A popular brand of
herbal hibiscus tea uses Roselle
fruit as its source, not the False
Roselle.
Young leaves of this Maroon
Mallow are burgundy, and get dark-
er and turn grayish as they become
older. The plant suckers and thick-
ens quickly, and may reach a height
of 10 feet if left unpruned. But if
allowed to grow too tall, the woody
stems ,will bend and break. As an
ornamental, it looks best if kept
trimmed to a 3-6 foot height, which
encourages branching and a fuller
appearance.
This hibiscus is reported to resist
both nematodes and insect pests,
and does well in sandy soil. The
leaves will wilt and droop but rap-
idly recover when irrigation is pro-
vided. Full sun will bring out the


deepest color of the False Roselle.
This plant may be very useful as
a colorful screening plant in Florida
yards recovering from storms
because of its rapid growth and
upright habit. One of our local Mas-
ter Gardeners had it in his land-
scape before last year's storms and
reports that it came through witi-
out any problems. It can be a wel-
come spot of color in dreary storm-
scape. Be sure to place it where it
has room to grow, and watch that it
does not escape into natural areas.
In more northern areas, False
Roselle will freeze to the ground,

which will act as a natural pruning
method. In colder areas cuttings
may be rooted or seedlings potted
up to keep it as an indoor potted
plant during the winter.
False Roselle is a short-day
plant, so during the fall and winter
small pretty pink or maroon flow-
ers appear between the reddish
leaves.. These flowers are smaller
that Chinese Hibiscus blooms, and
unless you're looking for them,
they maybe overlooked.
A possible problem comes from
the prolific seed production of this


plant: one garden author stated
that when pruned branches were
drug across the yard, the seed fell
and produced many new plants.
Be careful where it is used and be
sure to keep an eye out for unwant-
ed seedlings.
Finding a source of this plant
may be a bit challenging. Various
mail-order seed catalogs offer seed
of False Roselle. Seed have small
prickly hairs that may be irritating
to some people, so collect the seed
by cutting off the dried up seed cap-
sules into a paper bag. Pour the bag
of dried, collected capsules com-
plete with seed on the surface of
the ground in a prepared seedbed.
I've placed more information
on our Okeechobee web page,
http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu

. If you need additional information
on False Roselle, please email us at
okeechobee@ifas.ufl.edu or call us
at 863-763-6469. Local residents
can stop by our office at 458 Hwy
98 North in Okeechobee, and visit
our Okeechobee County Master
Gardeners on Tuesday afternoons
from I to5PM.
