Sandpaper Vine, Purple Wreath, Blue Bird Vine, Fleur de Dieu (Eng.) Perskransie (Afr.)
Queen's Wreath creates spectacular clusters of star-like purple flowers that come in racemes over 30 cm long. This plant is fairly low-maintenance, drought resistant, and can be trained to grow along a pergola, veranda, fence, pillar or trellis to create a beautiful hedge screen. It can be grown in a mixed border or patio container as a billowy shrub if the plant is pruned back after each flowering.
