Description:

Rarely offered shrub or can grow to a small tree. Grows well in moderately fertile but well drained soil in full sun, sheltered from strong winds. Can be trained to a wall. It starts to flower at a young age, and dislikes to be transplanted when established. It will bring lovely pink, pea-like, fragrant flowers in pendant clusters that are very attractive to bees and butterflies. The purple seedpods have an ornamental value too, but a warm summer needs to see them on the plant. The stems are covered with soft bristles.
