|Bushy annual. Leaves are medium green, 7 to 11 palmate, with obovate-oblong shaped leaflets to 2 1/2 inches long. Grown for their brilliant display of golden yellow, sweet pea shaped flowers on tall spikes in spring and early summer. Wonderful cottage garden additions, eye-catching when planted in large masses. Other than requiring good drainage, not fussy about soil. Can start from seed in winter or early spring.
