Hibbertia pedunculata – Guinea Flower

A hardy and adaptable low to prostrate small shrub, with golden flowers mainly in spring and summer, spot flowers possible for the rest of the year. It has fine leaves and a naturally compact habit, light pruning after flowering will encourage a more dense habit. It likes sun to part shade, prefers well drained soil. Performs well in pots and raised beds, looks great as an edging plant. Drought and frost tolerant. Naturally grows in open forest from northern Victoria through to southern Queensland, more prostrate plants will root at the nodes which makes for a hardier plant.
