Ocean Reef™

Hibbertia spicata 'WA01' PBR

View Wishlist


A compact Hibbertia with very glossy leaves.
    The Ocean Reef™ plant is a relatively slow growing small shrub that does not tend to elongate. It has a tight structure with small, glossy leaves.

    Excellent in coastal and limestone locations, as it will tolerate higher pH. Has proven sound in containers for periods up to 18 months, but Ocean Reef™ Hibbertia is best as a bedded plant with sound nutrient and moisture. This shrub needs sun every available day but will tolerate half day shade if kept warm and not too wet.
