Sophora prostrata

 
Common name kōwhai
Family fabaceae
Life cycle shrub
Flowers yellow
Size 6'
Light sun-part shade
From seed scarify, germinate at room temperature
detailed seed-starting info below

Evergreen shrub native to the South Island of New Zealand. A miniature form ('Little Baby') seems to be the main one grown in cultivation, but I believe our seed-grown plants will be the regular species, which can grow upright to 6 ft tall or more prostrate. Time will tell.

We're just trying this plant for the first time this year; it hasn't found a permanent place in our gardens yet. (click here for a full list)
