The current study is related to the scientific evaluation of cyto-morphological and anthelmentic studies of species of Hibiscus esculentus. The selected plants are either used by the traditional practitioners for its effect or cultivated in large quantity for its medicinal and edible purpose and have been never studied as presented in present investigation. Therefore, the present study was designed to develop the cyto-morphological studies of the plant and to explore the anthelmintic efficacy of the species.
