  • Among the approximately 130 species ofHibbertia found in Australia, there are tall shrubs, low or trailing shrubs and vines bearing a diversity of leaves as to shape and venation pattern. Flowers are solitary, in leafy cymes or in false spikes, and display various gradual and abrupt transitions from vegetative to reproductive appendages. In the androecium, stamen number is highly variable both between and within species. Some sections have radial symmetry, others bilateral symmetry of the… CONTINUE READING
