Also known as known as False Sarsparilla, Native Lilac or Purple Coral Pea. We have two varieties in our collection: Variety “Sea of Purple” is a quick and dense growing ground cover with excellent weed suppression. Smothered in dark purple flowers in late winter/early spring, creating a ‘Sea of Purple’!
Variety “Purple spray” is an upright form of Hardenbergia with a managable habit that produces a spectacular spring floral show of intense, purple, pea-like flowers on a hardy, evergreen plant.
All Australian natives love free-draining soil however Hardenbergia will tolerate a wide range of soils from sandy to loam or even clay. It loves sunlight and should be placed in a bright spot if not under direct sunlight. Both varieties can tolerate easily -5oC and up to +47oC during summer so feel comfortable to plant them in the ground if you don’t experience far colder winter.
This a typically low-maintainance species that won’t require a lot of your attention. Trim to shape after flowering if the plant needs tidying up and add some basic fertilization in the beginning and the end of the season.
