Hibbertia scandens

Fast-growing vine climbs by twining stems to 8–10 ft. In ideal climate, the foliage is handsome all year—narrow, waxy dark green leaves to 3 in. long. Blooms from spring into early fall. Good for small garden areas if trained on a trellis or against a low fence; can be grown as groundcover. Do any significant thinning in late fall or winter; remove errant stems as needed during bloom time. Recovers quickly from light frosts.
