Native Sarsparilla Seeds- Hardenbergia violacea


*** Approximately 20-25 seeds per packet ***

A tough and easy care climber or ground covering plant, this plant is spectacular when in flower, with many purple sprays of blossom. It blooms from spring through summer, and the plant fixes nitrogen from the air, which is good for the soil. It grows low if used as a groundcover to around 3 metres wide, and the dense habit smothers weeds once established, making it good for home gardens and larger landscapes. If used as a climber it will grow from 1 to 5 metres high but can be trimmed to the desired size and width. Low frost tolerance but is drought tolerant, suits light clay to sandy soils, sun to part shade.

SEED SOWING – Sow seed in the warm months of the year. The seed has a hard coating, and needs soaking overnight to soften it. Put boiling water into a container, then put seeds in the water and let it cool down naturally. Plant the next day into seed raising mix, only just covering the seed with soil, keep moist but not wet until germination, which should be in 1 to 3 weeks.
