Hardenbergia violacea

Very rare and unusual climber. Also known as the Lilac Vine, it resembles a miniature flowering Wisteria with the added bonus of elongated evergreen leaves and a much faster growth rate. During Spring and summer it is smothered in violet lightly delicate scented flowers and will cover whole fences and walls with little support. Needs some frost protection. Height and spread 2.5m.

Additional Information

Loved by bees and butterflies. Evergreen climber. No regular pruning needed, however trimming may be required to keep neat and tidy after flowering. Hardenbergia do not like to be transplanted once in situ although pots and containers should be moved to a suitable environment when frosts and cold weather arise.Propagate by softwood cuttings in spring. Half Hardy to tender perennial, but would appreciate a warm wall.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
