Hardenbergia violacea 'Canoelands' (Purple Vine Lilac) - An evergreen vine that climbs by twining stems to 12-16 feet with simple linear leaves, that are narrower and more squared at the tip that the more common 'Happy Wanderer' with the same pinkish-purple flowers with a chartreuse spot in the center, but the flowers are slightly longer and the flowering period from winter through spring. Plant in sun or light shade in hot inland areas. Requires little water once established. This variety flowers longer than the more common 'Happy Wanderer' variety, often from mid-winter to late spring - it can still be in flower as late as early June while the more common 'Happy Wanderer' finishes up in late March. As with 'Happy Wanderer' it can become a little bare at the base and benefits from an occasional cutting back. We first started growing this nice selection in 2007 after purchasing it from Suncrest Nurseries but have never determined where it originated. We also grow other varieties of Hardenbergia violacea such as 'Happy Wanderer' and 'Mini Haha' and in the past have grown 'Meema' as well as another species, Hardenbergia comptoniana.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Hardenbergia violacea 'Canoelands'.
