Out of stock

Crotalaria capensis (Fabaceae) It is an evergreen, quick-growing, much-branched shrub or small upright tree, 2-5 m high. The main stem is slender with drooping branches, the new stems are velvety to the touch. Attractive trifoliate leaves are bright green above and blue-green beneath, and the young growth is silvery blue. The large, very pretty flowers have bright yellow petals which are often edged with red. Sowing: The seeds must first be soaked in hot water, left overnight and planted the next morning in seedling trays. Cover the seeds lightly with river sand and keep moist. Placing a clear glass over the seedling tray can speed up germination. Locality: Caledon. Harvest: June 2023
