Sweet Pea Shrub
An assumed cross between 2 South African species, P. oppositifolia and P. myrtifolia, this fast growing, bushy evergreen shrub captivates gardeners, hummingbirds and florists with ornate terminal racemes of vibrant, rosy magenta pea-like blossoms. Characterized by 2 winged petals surrounding a frilly-looking white-based purple crest, the floriferous gala continues nonstop from summer ’til frost, lasting nearly year round in milder coastal areas. Tasteful gray-green leaves—small, ovate, narrow and deer-resistant—cloak the rounded somewhat open frame that appreciates a late winter cutback to ensure a pleasing full appearance. Sweet Pea Shrub counts the Milkworts among its kin, forbears either sun or bright shade, and adores evenly moist, well-drained abodes with winter shelter from temperatures much below 18°.
Size: 3' 0"–5' 0" high x 4' 0"–6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 9.
Polygalax dalmaisiana (S-0830)
