An attractive and fast growing Native Hibiscus. A long flowering medium sized shrub rarely troubled by pests. Prune after spring blooming to encourage new flowering growth. It can have an open habit which will be improved by shaping, as it readily forms a rounded dense shape with regular pruning. Needs a well drained soil and best in a sunny position. A good screening plant and informal hedging. Feed in spring with a good native fertiliser or seaweed solution, and mulch well to deter weed growth. Tolerates light frost. This plant is also known as Alyogyne ‘Swan River’.
