Alyogyne hakeifolia ‘Elle Marie’ – Native Hibiscus

A lovely and interesting native Hibiscus, growing to around 2 metres high and wide. An outstanding, long flowering medium shrub. Prune after spring flowering to encourage a more dense habit and to stimulate new flowering growth. Beautiful creamy yellow flower with red centre. Flowers best in a sunny spot and needs a well drained soil. Feed with a good native fertiliser or seaweed extract.
