Hibbertia marginata

Status: Vulnerable on the EPBC Act list

Hibbertia marginata, Family Dilleniaceae, also known as the Bordered Guinea Flower or Tall Guinea Flower, is a suckering shrub growing to 50 cm high. The young branches are covered in short white hairs (Harden, 1990). The leaves are narrowly oblong, slightly rolled back along the edges. They are paler below, with sparse silver hairs on both surfaces. The bright- yellow flowers appear in spring and are 2Ð3 cm across. The green sepals behind the flowers are densely hairy except for a broad smooth strip around the margin. The fruits consist of three joined capsules that split at the top (DECC, 2005).
