Hardenbergia violacea 'Happy Wanderer' - Happy Wanderer Lilac Vine
Also known as Lilac Vine, Hardenbergia is a moderate growing, shrubby evergreen vine that climbs by twining stems to 12-16 feet. It has lancelike deep green leaves and an abundance of cascading flower sprays with pea-like flowers in winter and spring. This Australian native is a member of the pea family and is hardy in mild climates and coastal areas where the temperature does not fall below 23 degrees. Great for use along fences, trellises and arbors, or can be allowed to spread as a groundcover. Hardenbergia tolerates full to partial shade and is quite drought tolerant once established.
