Native HibiscusTo Plants
The Hibiscus heterophyllus, commonly referred to as the Native Hibiscus, is a particularly attractive native flower for a number of reasons. Not only is it blessed with pretty white, purple-hearted blooms but its nectar attracts insects like butterflies and honeyeaters. Found around the east coast of Australia, the varieties found in New South Wales start to flower in December whilst their northern cousins start to flower in June and commonly produce yellow flowers. Both drought-resistant and frost hardy, they are becoming more popular as a domestic plant, with simple propogation methods and widespread availability in nurseries.
