Color Palette: Hardenbergia Violets

Mar 09


In late January – February these amazing violet blossoms burst open to bring color to my backyard and give yet another promise of Spring. Hardenbergia, or vine lilac, is what they are and I absolutely love them. They have no fragrance, but what they lack in smell they more than make up in beauty. Purple is a hard color for me to grow in my yard, and when these blooms arrive without any effort on my part I feel really grateful for their presence.
