Hibbertia scandens

Guinea Gold Vine
Evergreen, Ground covers, Vines


These Australian native evergreen shrubs and vines are grown for their attractive foliage and bright yellow flowers resembling wild roses.

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.
