The Snake Vine (Hibbertia scandens), also known as the Guinea Flower, is a vigorous, twining vine native to eastern Australia. It typically grows to about 0.5-3 meters tall and spreads up to 3 meters wide, with dense, dark green foliage. The leaves are small and oval-shaped, about 1-2 cm long, and have a glossy surface. The most striking feature of this plant is its abundance of bright yellow flowers, about 4-5 cm in diameter, that bloom throughout spring and summer. These cheerful blooms attract bees, butterflies, and lizards to your garden.


    • Ornamental: Snake Vine is a popular ornamental plant due to its attractive flowers, dense foliage, and ease of care. It can be used as a groundcover, a climbing vine on fences or trellises, or even grown in containers.
    • Wildlife attraction: The flowers and nectar of the Snake Vine attract various beneficial insects and pollinators, creating a vibrant ecosystem in your garden.

Growing and caring:

Snake Vine is a relatively easy plant to grow. It prefers well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Once established, it is drought tolerant but will appreciate occasional watering during dry spells. It can be pruned to maintain its shape and size.


Snake Vine typically grows to about 0.5-3 meters tall.

Additional tips:

    • Snake Vine is generally disease and pest resistant.
    • It can be propagated easily through cuttings or division.
    • When planting Snake Vine, be sure to provide support for it to climb, such as a trellis or fence.
    • Deadhead spent flowers to encourage further blooms.
