Enrico, Canberra Kmart just have hardenbergias coming. They have purple only, no white ones like Luzy. When I wanna take one pot, one lady told me..you better watch it growing or it'll be uncontrollable :shock: . Is it true?? Luzy???

Yani, you would be amazingly lucky to have an uncontrollable hardenbergia!! They can grow generously, but are easily pruned back if you really want them smaller, :shock: and they don't have a sneaky underground root growth or rampant self seeding, or anything difficult like that. They are held in check over winter here, and in the minus eight freeze the outer leaves around here have gone brown. I think you would find them a lovely plant. :D

I don't think so, Yani.

I remember last year they were selling pots of 'twins', with both a white and a purple plant in each pot.
