Family Dilleniaceae

Hibbertia dentata

A twining creeping plant with large dark green, reddish leaves which are toothed at the margins. The flowers are larger than those of most Hibbertia species, but smaller than those of H. scandens, and are about 3 cm across. The plant has a creeping or twining habit.

Flowering: mostly in spring

Habitat: Sheltered forests, rainforest margins, often found growing in larger bushes. It is also a very successful garden plant, which is easy to propagate, as stems will grow roots at the nodes, and it also grows freely from seed.

Distribution: Widespread from coast to mountains. Along the coast from Victoria to Queensland.
