Hardenbergia violaceae ‘Snow White’

 

A vigorous climbing form of this wonderful pioneer plant with light green leaves and pure white sprays of flowers from mid winter through spring.

Doesn’t mind hard pruning if needed. Needs a well drained acidic soil, sandy to clay loam, flowers best in full sun. Tolerates light to medium frost.
