A sport from its parent Free ‘n Easy, Hardenbergia Snow White is startlingly different. Pure snowy white blossom cascades over bright green foliage from mid winter to spring. Cover a fence or a wall, or train up a pergola post, and you’ll be delighted with the effect. Once the flowering is over, get the secateurs to work and prune it hard. Hardenbergias all do well in full sun and much prefer a dryish soil; sitting in soggy ground is not at all to their liking.
