Formatted abstract
The objectives for breeding and development of new cultivars will vary depending on the target market segment i.e. potted plants, small gardens v's acreages, and broader landscape use (e.g. streetscapes, parks and gardens). For example, the size of the fully grown plant or the presence of prickles on the stems is not as great a consideration for people on acreage as for those on suburban blocks; members who like to prepare ‘bush foods’ from their Hibiscus may have a focus on edible plants; members who live in inland sites where drought and frosts are more pronounced may concentrate on hardy plants with specific characteristics such as colour of blooms or duration of blooms.
