Plant Details

A very rarely offered and most unusual plant in the clover family bearing pink and purple flowers above clumps of pinnate leaves. Intriguingly shaped seed pods with deeply-scalloped edges later appear.

Very easily grown, carefree and requiring no maintenance, the plant will succeed in ordinary garden soil, though it prefers a reasonably well-drained and moderately fertile soil.

From the Middle East. Appears to be drought tolerant when established.

Flowers in mid-summer.

Height and spread: 50cm

Common name(s): Biserrula

Synonym: Biserrula pelecinus

All our plants are supplied established in pots. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
