Moderate-growing, shrubby evergreen vine with stems to 10-15’ long if supported. This vigorous Australian native features lance-shaped, glossy dark-green leaves, and is most-greatly prized for its abundant, eye-catching clusters of deep-violet-purple flowers that appear late-winter into spring. Well-suited for fences, arbors or trellises, or left to scramble as a shrubby groundcover. Prune after flowering to promote a tighter shape, and to encourage the emergence of fresh new foliage. Thrives in a rich, well-drained soil with regular watering during the warmer months of the year, and reduced watering in winter. Older, fully-established plants can survive on relatively low amounts of water. Prefers a full to partial sun exposure.

USDA Zone: 9B-11
