Hello, In my experience, I would plant any flowers aldabs enjoy eating outside the pen. My aldabs would never let anything they enjoy to recover before they eat it again, it just never gets to bloom. The hibiscus they love, but again I plant most of them outside their pen and keep one in the pen but this only lasts a short time and has to get replaced quite often as they bulldoze it over and munch it down to the ground(flowers,leaves and stems). Their are lists of edible flowers and plants for torts, I cant help with that though. Rose of sharon bushes are good and get big enough not to be damaged by the torts(almost like hibiscus but can over winter outside). After reading this to myself you would think that they are starving, but they are in a well planted piece of property and are fed they just seek these things out first then go to grazing on the grass. Hope this helps, simpler is not only easier its more enjoyable sometimes!
