Hardenbergia violacea ‘Free And Easy’ – Hardenbergia


A vigorous climbing form of this wonderful pioneer plant with light green leaves and lavender tinged white flowers. The very subtle mauve flowers are sensational. This plant makes a great ground cover but will also climb vigorously if given something to support it. Will cover 3 to 4 metres in area unpruned, but can also be trimmed to size. Good in sun to light shade. Will grow in most soil types as long as they get good drainage.
