This twining vine is native to northern coastal NSW and southern Queensland, so suits sub-tropical areas. It bears large trusses of purple pea flowers in late winter to spring, which resemble the exotic wisteria, but this vine is an evergreen. It has handsome glossy leaves, so is attractive even when not in flower. It is a good butterfly attracting plant. It can grow tall, scrambling to the top of trees in the wild, but can be controlled with regular pruning.
It used to be known as Millettia megasperma.
