    Description

Schrankia uncinata - Sensitive Plant

This is a listing for 30 seeds of this unusual perennial member of the pea or vetch family.

Like members of the mimosa group, this plant has leaves that react to touch and quickly fold up when triggered, leaving just the stems exposed, which are covered in recurving spines, unpalatable to most casual grazing animals.  After a few minutes (10 - 30) of no further stimulus, the leaves unfold once more.  The plant grows to 90 cm tall and has a spread of 45 - 60 cm.  It has flowers typical of the group, pink/mauve pom-poms, held clear of the foliage in the summer.  If polinated, these are followed by prickly seed pods with 7 - 11 seeds inside.

Hardy in zones 5 and up, this prefers a location in full sun or semi-shade and is tolerant of most soil types.  It is ideal to cover an area of poor soil as like many of the family it fixes its own nitrogen in the soil, improving so that other plants may also grow there.

Full growing instructions can be downloaded from my website, details of which are on my 'Me' page
