Guinea flowers are fierce and golden - The Conversation AU
What we know about Hibbertia
English merchant and amateur botanist Henry Charles Andrews named the genus Hibbertia after his friend George Hibbert (1757-1837). Andrews was an artist and engraver as well as a botanist, and the first species he named was based on a plant collected around Port Jackson.
Around 200 species are recognised but there are many unnamed varieties, particularly in tropical areas. Probably the most widespread species and one of the few cultivated is the climbing guinea flower (Hibbertia scandens). It can be grown readily from cuttings but germinates slowly from seeds.
Most species have hairs covering the leaves, which can be critical for identifying a species. Under a good hand lens or a simple microscope their variety and beauty is obvious. In some species the hairs are straight. In others they are branched with arms resembling the spokes on a star, the so-called "stellate hairs".
Some species have scales – flat, plate-like structures – on their leaves and flowers. Sometimes there are large and small scales on the one surface.
The leaves are also diverse in shape and form: some leaves are shaped like spear and thick, as in Hibbertia banksii of the eastern Cape York area, others are needle-like with margins rolled towards the lower midrib, with a sharp, blood-drawing tip, as in Hibbertia ferox.

The flowers are usually solitary and roughly 2cm in diameter, but in some of the northern species they grow in spikes roughly 4-5cm across.
Five sepals surround the five petals, which are broadest towards the top. The flowers usually close at night and reopen the next day.
A distinctive feature is the arrangement of the stamens (the male parts). These may be all on one side of the carpels (the structures containing the unfertilised seeds at the centre of the flower) or may form a form a ball in the centre. The number varies between species from fewer than 10 to more than 100.

Riggenbach: Consider out-of-the-ordinary perennials for your fall garden
The ideal spot is morning sun, with shade in the hot afternoon.— Bottle gentian (Gentiana andrewsii). Unique blue flowers shaped like little bottles bloom throughout the autumn. A good choice for the rain garden, this 1- to 2-foot-tall native perennial prefers wet or moist soil in sun or partial shade.— White wood aster (Eurybia divaricata). Asters for a sunny garden are an autumn mainstay. But an aster that blooms in full shade? Special, indeed. I love its white, star-shaped flowers that cover the 18-inch-tall native plants in autumn. The dark-green foliage and dark stems are handsome in all seasons.— October daphne (Sedum sieboldii). The scalloped blue-green foliage of this uncommon creeping sedum looks good throughout the growing season, but the pink flowers hold off until the end. October daphne is easy to grow in full sun or partial shade.Write to JAN RIGGENBACH in care of the Journal Star, 1 News Plaza, Peoria IL 61643. (Washington Times-Reporter)Feb 23, 2017

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. — Former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, arrived in Rancho Mirage around 8 p.m. PT Friday after inclement weather changed their travel plans.
Their 10-car motorcade pulled into the gated community of Thunderbird Heights while three dozen onlookers cheered through a downpour of rain.
Dozens of people in Palm Springs waited hours to glimpse the former president and first lady, but their hopes were dashed when a storm system diverted the Obamas’ flight from its planned trajectory, said Tom Nolan, executive director of the Palm Springs International Airport.
They landed instead at March Air Reserve Base near Riverside, Calif., around 5:45 p.m. PT.
