Hardenbergia Happy Wanderer
Hardenbergia violacea selection
Hardenbergia Happy Wanderer probably had no idea just how far and wide it would travel when it was introduced to the world in the mid 1970s. It’d cover thousands of miles now if you added up all the landscapes in which it’s been planted. You can’t miss seeing it in winter and early spring, when it is covered in a solid mass of deep mauve-purple pea flowers. Perhaps the best Hardenbergia selection ever made, it thrives in temperate and semi arid climates, in well drained clay loams or sandy soils, neutral to acid pH. It tolerates light frosts, is generally fine in more sheltered coastal gardens, and adores a good hard pruning after flowering is finished. It’s breathtaking.
