Hardenbergia violacea (Schneev) Stearn is accepted as native in Tasmania. Hardenbergia violaceawas first described (as Glycine violacea) by Schneevoogt (l 793) from cultivated planes probably collected as seeds in the Sydney area in the first few years of settlement. This scrambling or trailing perennial grows from a woody rootstock and produces long wiry stems that climb on ocher planes or trail over rocky outcrops. le is well known in Victoria and New South Wales, where it occurs widely in dry open forests, but its occurrence in Tasmania is limited to the Pomos Hills near Richmond in the southeastern part of the state.
