Dorycnium (Canary & Mediterranean Shrub Clover)

The genus Dorycnium consists of mostly annuals to perennials and are represented by few woody species only. These Shrub Clovers are native of the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands, where the Canary endemic Dorycnium species are all rare to almost extinct in nature. They grow as woody shrubs with ornamental, broadly feathered foliage and terminal clusters of small, cream white or rose flowers, followed by narrow brownish seed capsules, which have the typical long form for members of the pea family (Fabaceae). For any rich, well drained soil in an always sunny spot. Excellent pot plants for a frostfree cultivation, keep drier in winter at a minimum of some 10°C.
Sow flat on any rich, well drained soil in full sun throughout the year.
