Hibbertia : Greenhouse Plants

C – cool, minimum of 7°C (45°F) / W – warm, minimum of 13°C (55°F)

Family: Dilleniaceae

I have grown what I originally thought were two separate species; Hibbertia volubilis and H. scandens. However, they appear to be identical and H. scandens would seem to be the correct name. This is the Guinea Flower of Australia. It is worth growing for its glossy leaves and cheerful yellow flowers that appear sporadically throughout the year. A twiner, this plant will happily reach 4.5 m (15 ft) and keep growing, but thankfully can be cut back freely to the size desired and will flower as small plants. Seed pods will split to reveal red seeds which add to their attraction. Propagation is by cuttings or seed.
