  • Description and Cultural Plant Tips

    This climbing evergreen climber has masses of soft pink, small pea like-flowers in spring. It is an excellent cover for fences, walls and arbors. It can also be trained as a groundcover. This climber does not grow as quickly as Wisteria and trumpet vines and can more easily be kept in its place.

    Plant slightly above grade in a sunny, well-drained location. While Hardenbergia likes a loamy soil, they will do well in just about any soil as long as it is well-drained. Water well the first season but it is fairly drought tolerant once established. Flowers best in full sun. Prune after blossoming to control size and reduce legginess at the bottom of plant.

    Bees enjoy the nectar from these vines and because it is an early spring bloomer it provides a much  needed food source when resources are still scarce.

    No significant pests or diseases.
