Hardenbergia Sweetheart is such a versatile native - train it as a climber to provide a quick screen on fences and pergolas, grow it as a dense ground cover to cascade down banks or walls, plant it in pots on the deck. You'll get an abundance of winter flowers, deep purple against glossy green leaves, which are obliging enough to stand upright, proud of the foliage, so you can see them more easily. We love Sweetheart for the larger leaves, range of uses, bright colour
Hardenbergia violacea ‘Sweetheart’ PBR - purple coral pea, happy wandererAPPEARANCE: Native to Australia, this new Hardenbergia variety has larger leaves than the species form. Groundcover, or can be trained as a climber. Deep purple, pea-flowers during winter and spring.
USE FOR: Ground cover, low maintenance gardens, poolside, cottage style gardens, coastal areas. Beautiful feature plant or mass planted for maximum flowering effect. Can be grown as a climber if provided support or be left to mound.
PLANTING: Plant in a full sun to partly shaded position in the garden for maximum flowering period. Protect from frost. Mulch and water well until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks.
CARE: Hardenbergia are drought tolerant but flower better with reliable water. Prune after flowering to encourage dense growth habit and longer flowering. Mulch and feed after pruning with a slow release native fertiliser during spring - Hardenbergia are phosphorus-sensitive so the P ratio of the fertiliser needs to be under 3%.
