Desmodium yunnanense

Very different from the more usual D. elegans, this will make a large deciduous shrub with comparatively big, rounded, thickly silvery-hairy leaves and rich purple-pink pea flowers in dense clusters in late summer and autumn. This needs the backing of a warm sunny wall in most places and will come back strongly from the base if cut by cold, though at Bristol Botanic Garden, for example, it grows out in the open and thrives.

Pot size: 2L
