Hardenbergia violacea, also known as the Purple Coral Pea or Happy Wanderer, is a popular Australian native vine that is commonly used in landscaping. It produces beautiful clusters of deep purple flowers in late winter to early spring, making it a great addition to gardens, borders, and fences. Its twining habit allows it to climb and cover structures or walls, making it a great choice for adding vertical interest to a garden. It is also relatively low maintenance, preferring well-draining soil and regular pruning to maintain its shape and encourage more flowers.
