Alyogyne ‘Delightfully Double’ – Native Hibiscus

The unique feature of this excellent shrub is that it is the first native hibiscus with a double flower (ie the flower has an extra row of petals). It is a fast growing medium sized shrub that makes a superb feature plant in either a garden bed or large pot as it is smothered in flowers from early summer to autumn. It is relatively tolerant of both dry or humid conditions and will thrive over a large area of Australia. Give it a light trim after the first big summer flush of flowers, regular pruning will make the plant more dense and attractive.
