Hardenbergia comptoniana

Western Australia Coral Pea, Compton Coral Pea, Lilac Vine

These twining or shrubby vines are graced with spikes of small pea-shaped flowers that bloom in winter or early spring. Grown outdoors in warm climates only. The slow-growing evergreens can be trained as screens on trellises, walls or fences, or used as ground covers. Drought-tolerant once established. Need partial shade in hot areas. Start with seeds or cuttings from young spring growth. Need support if grown as a climbing vine. Feed every two months. Prune to control size, and cut back tangled vines after bloom.
