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.

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.

Dig a hole, drop them in. Our plants can be inserted straight into the ground without any fuss.

Held longer

We hold our plants back from sale until they are big and strong. Out of the box, your plants will thrive.

We hand select all our plants prior to shipping. That means premium stock and no duds.


We use a deeper tube to promote a mature root system. This helps get your plants off to a punchy start when they hit the ground.
