Characteristics: Evergreen Shrub to 2 m spread 2 m
Seeds per packet: 30
An evergreen shrub with downy foliage and attractive clusters of yellow flowers throughout the summer followed by curious snail-shaped pods.
A perennial leguminous shrub which can grow between 2-4 m high under favourable conditions.
Native to the southern European highlands.
Adaptable to most well-drained soils in an open sunny position, frost resistant but drought tender.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°C.
Seeds germinate readily, however they do have a hard outer coating which is impervious to water and generally germination will normally not occur unless the seed is scarified by abrading or pre-treated with boiling water first.
General note: Seeds of many natives are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
