Rose of Sharon - how to dry for tea??

dzr4(7)June 25, 2013

I want to dry my Rose of Sharon flowers but I'm not sure when or what part.
Do I do it before they open? while open? or after they're done blooming?

While they're open the pistil is all covered in pollen - seems like that would be weird to have in tea... Attached is a picture of what they are dropping after they bloom.

I have searched for this info - most sites just say use flowers fresh but I want to dry them... It's different than for regular Hibiscus (this page is great if you're looking for that info: )

I see you got an answer to your question over on the Hibiscus forum.. They would be they best source for the info so I hope that helped.
