Hibbertia sp ‘Golden Sunburst’ – Guinea Flower

A great little groundcover for low maintenance flower gardens, with masses of golden flowers in spring and autumn. It forms low mounds naturally without the need to constantly prune the foliage or remove dead flowers, very easy care. A handful of slow release fertiliser in spring is beneficial. Adapts to most well drained soil types, in full sun to part shade. Suits formal gardens as well as natural styled ones, and is great for containers and round the pool. Good for coastal areas, and is also frost tolerant.
