Hardenbergia violacea ‘Mystic Marvel’

An eye catching selection of this popular and hardy climber or groundcover plant. It flowers profusely in spring with trusses of bi-coloured pea flowers of purple and white. Also looks great in a container. Suits a wide range of soil types, sun to part shade, but the best flowering is in more sun. Regular pruning from when it is small will create a good habit, if left alone Hardenbergias can get top heavy. A good climber that doesn’t get too rampant, and can also be pruned to a shrubby habit if desired or to be a groundcover if there is nothing to climb. Tolerates only light frost.
