Family fabaceae
Life cycle shrub

Size 6'
Light sun-part shade

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.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
