Alyogyne hakeifolia 'Melissa Anne'
native hibiscus


Native hibiscus are very decorative in the garden, fast growing and naturally rounded in habit, with beautiful large pink flowers with red centers. 'Melissa Anne' is an excellent medium-sized shrub with long flowering, useful for use in alignment or informal hedging. Prune after spring flowering to encourage a dense habit and new flowering growth. It needs well-draining soil and best in a sunny location. Tolerates some frost, but does not like wind. Feed with a good fertilizer in the warm months, watering afterwards to prevent burns to the leaves or roots.
