Where To Buy Roselle Plants In Singapore

Roselle Roselle also named as Hibiscus Sabdariffa or 洛神花(LuoShenHua) is the beauty herb of the orient. I ever seen the flower buds are sold in the NTUC.
Does anyone know where to buy Roselle in Singapore?
According to wiki, the Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa) is a species of hibiscus native to the Old World tropics. It is an annual or perennial herb or woody-based subshrub, growing to 2–2.5 m tall. The leaves are deeply three- to five-lobed, 8–15 cm long, arranged alternately on the stems.
The flowers are 8–10 cm in diameter, white to pale yellow with a dark red spot at the base of each petal, and have a stout fleshy calyx at the base, 1.5–2 cm wide, enlarging to 3–3.5 cm, fleshy and bright red as the fruit matures. It is an annual plant, and takes about six months to mature.
A roselle variety planted in Malaysia. Roselle fruits are harvested fresh, and their calyces are made into a drink rich in vitamin C and anthocyanins.

Those bud-like things are the calyx left after the petals have fallen off, and they can be made into wine, thrown into salads and even fried.
