By contrast, Hardenbergia
comptoniana and Eucalyptus gomphocephala exhibited vigorous growth and dark green leaves with no specific symptoms resembling micronutrient deficiencies.
Two brand-new plants are the bird-of-paradise ``Gold Crest,'' which has yellow instead of the customary orange plumes, and from Australia, ``Mini-Ha-Ha'' Hardenbergia
, a dwarf shrub.
VINES, CLIMBERS: Clematis, Hardenbergia

To create subtle changes of height, garden designer Susan Sasaki clustered low growing plants near the street side and taller foliage closer to the house, where wisteria and hardenbergia
drape over a trellis.
Among the easiest vines to train in small spaces are these: deciduous clematis, hardenbergia
, ivy geraniums, flame honeysuckle (Lonicera heckrottii), Mandevilla 'Alice du Pont', star jasmine, Cape honeysuckle (Tecomaria capensis), and most annuals from seeds (including canary vine, morning glory, scarlet runner bean).
Good choices for fairly small spaces include many clematis, hardenbergia
, gold flame honeysuckle (Lonicera heckrottii), star jasmine, Carolina jessamine, Mandevilla "Alice du Pont', and annualls such as canary vine, morning glory, and--in cool-summer climates-- climbing nasturtiums.
For starters, I might have opted for two beauties that are flowering now: Hardenbergia
violacea, the purple-blooming Australian pea or Gelsemium sempervirens, the yellow-trumpeted Carolina jessamine.
Among the combinations to be found are: baby blue plumbago (Plumbago auriculata) in vermillion bottlebrush (Callistemon citrinus); violet hardenbergia
violaceae) in lilac chinaberry (Melia azederach); and, for leaf contrast, pinnately compound, serrated cape honeysuckle (Tecomaria capensis) in simple, heart-shaped catalpa (Catalpa bignonioides).
Plant Winter Flowers Plant flowers that thrive in winter, for example: lavender, winter rose, paper daisies, and hardenbergias
Climbing plants like hardenbergias
with purple or white flowers and orange pyrostegia from the southern hemisphere are in glorious flower, although the latter doesn't like cold temperatures as I know to my cost.
