Hardenbergia violacea ‘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. This plant makes a great ground cover and looks great spilling over banks, but will also climb vigorously if given something to support it, and can be pruned to keep it to the desired size. 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.
