My Rose of Sharon is in full bloom right now. Since it's related to hibiscus and mallow, I thought that I would gather some of the flowers for tea. Does anyone use these? Do you dry just the petals or the entire flower?

What (if anything) have you found the flowers to be useful for? I occasionally munch on one, but that's about it .I do use very young leaves in salad.
