My girlfriend has a thriving Hibiscus plant and I was gonna offer some flowers but are the leaves edible as well?

Drop a whole branch in. It's all good ,good good. Consider drying leaves for use in the winter to help with the dried grass blues tortoises get. Soak and sprinkle and they get more vits. that they might not be getting.

Turk's Cap is edible flowers and all, too. It grows great in Texas. I've got it in my butterfly/hummingbird garden in Austin.
