Billardiera lehmanniana – Kurup

This rambling native perennial grows as a medium twining shrub, or as a climber if provided support. Flowers abundantly from late Summer to early Winter, producing extravagant displays of small white or pale blue flowers clustered along the stems. The dark green foliage and twining habit make it a great plant for screening, and it performs very well as a garden and landscape plant both as a climber or as a mid-sized shrub if grown without support. Water regularly to encourage prolific flowering.
