Plant Species of the genus Alyogyne

Information about this genus
Name: Alyogyne
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: These are hardy plants for non-humid areas. Most are able to survive frost. They do best planted in full sun and can survive in all soil types but appreciate good drainage. Pruning is sometimes necessary to control shape. Propagation is from easily struck cuttings or by seed.
Description: Once included within the genus Hibiscus, these 4 distinctive evergreen Australian shrubs, despite their delicate silky blooms, are native to the drier regions of the western half of the continent. The leaves are variable; in some species they can be entire while in other species they are palmately lobed. They are fast growing and, as though to make up for their short-lived single blooms, usually in pinks or mauves, they flower profusely over a long period.
