my hibiscus didn't make it through the winter, i kept it inside during the freezing cold but apparently it wasn't enough sunlight for it.

my local store just got in some "rose of sharon" labeled as "Hibiscus syriacus" i believe, i cant remember the last part of the name right now but it did say hibiscus and this is the name that came up when i was searching.
it also said that it was "deer resistant" on the tag. is this type of hibiscus edible for my iguanas?

i looked up rose of sharon and there are numerous plants that use that nickname, but this one said it was the hibiscus variety.

the "deer resistant" on the label threw me, it didn't say why. i would assume anything that says it is resistant to a pest usually means it isnt edible.

had anyone tried using this particular plant for their iggies diet?

thanks in advance, and it it isnt okay for them ill just have to wait a while until they get the same kind of hibiscus i got last year which is unfortunate because last time they didnt come in until fall.
i like the option of hibiscus for them because our markets green selection is horrible, they are usually wilted. (but i am making a garden this year that will have a some collard greens planted)
