Hardenbergia violacea is a hardy, twining, evergreen climber, which has dark green, leathery leaves and produces an impressive display of dark purple, pea-like flowers.

A striking Australian native plant that is more commonly known as "False Sarsaparilla" or "Purple Coral Pea". Flowering best when grown in full sun, it will also grow successfully and flower in a semi-shaded position. It prefers well drained soil and will tolerate a light frost. Light pruning just after flowering will create a nice compact growth.

The natural distribution of this species is represented in the map below. Hence, it is well suited to growing in cultivation along the east coast of Australia. Suitable for use as ground cover on embankments, or trained along fencing or other structures. It is also compatible for planting with other non-woody-stemmed climbers, e.g Pandorea jasminoides.
