Hibbertia empetrifolia, commonly known as Tangled Guinea-flower, is a small scrambling shrub that is native to south-eastern Australia. It grows to 60 cm high and has yellow flowers that appear throughout the year.

The species was initially named Pleurandra empetrifolia and formally described in 1817 by Swiss botanist Augustin Pyramus de Candolle in Regni Vegetabilis Systema Naturale. It was subsequently placed in the genus Hibbertia.

Hibbertia empetrifolia occurs in forest and woodland in New South Wales and Victoria.

Cultivation

Hibbertia empetrifolia is regarded as one of the best suited species of Hibbertia for cultivation, preferring a well-drained situation with some shade. It is frost resistant and withstands some dryness, but performs best with adequate moisture.
