Hardenbergia comptoniana is a species of flowering plant in the pea family, Fabaceae, native to Western Australia. A twining vine, it produces purple flowers in the Southern Hemisphere spring. It is found on sand dunes and sand plains, and in open forest, on sand- or clay-based soils. It is readily cultivated in the garden, where it does best in a part-shaded position. It is a vigorous twining vine with characteristically narrow trifoliate leaves, which distinguish it readily from its closest relative Hardenbergia violacea which has entire leaves.

The pea-shaped flowers appear from August to November (Southern Hemisphere late winter to spring) and can range in colour from mauve, to purple to dark blue, with pink and white forms also known. The two eye spots on the standard are white, in contrast to the light green-yellow spots on H. violacea. The flowers are arranged in drooping racemes. The flowers are followed by the development of the smooth grey-brown cylindrical seed pods. They are around 3.5 centimetres (1.4 in) long. The seed pods make an audible 'pop' when they release the seeds. Use it to screen fences or walls or as a vigorous ground cover that can stabilise embankments. It needs very little fertiliser and can stand dry conditions very well. Give it a trim after flowering if you feel a tidy up is necessary.
