Flower, Sensitive Plant - SOLD OUT

Item Details

The ornamental pinnate leaves of this Brazilian species close when touched by children (or adults, who also cannot resist them). This pea relative bears lilac-pink spherical flowers which precede the development of its seed pods and does best when watered sparingly and from below. The species is tough and well suited to containers, but one must be careful not to “tickle it to death.”
