Alyogyne huegelii ‘Karana’ – Native Hibiscus


A hardy and easy care small shrub growing to around a metre and a half high and wide, it has mauve-purple large flowers from spring through to autumn. It is dense growing and suitable for low hedging and screening as well as containers. It responds well to a frequent light prune, which should be done after flowering, and it can be shaped to size. Frost hardy, it does well in cool temperate to sub-tropical climates, in well drained soils and sun to part shade.
