My Hardenbergia

When this blog recently showed some of the native plants in S’s garden, I remembered I was growing a Hardenbergia violaceae at the bottom of my garden. Years ago I planted it at a tea tree fence edge and hoped it would climb. Climb it did. Slowly. Over the fence and around the nearby camellia bushes, but not invasively nor did the Hardenbergia strangle the other plants. Rather it twines a little then lays itself gently and lightly. All plants continue to thrive without any attention from me – even regular and timely watering in summer is something which may be absent, and the plants go on.

The flowers are stunning.

I wonder what winter flowering native plants you are growing.
