Bright orange-yellow, bell- shaped flowers contrast with the unusual fern-like, dark green pinnate leaves, which clothe the zig-zaggy stems of this evergeen shrub. It makes and unusual and airy addition to the garden, while its structural form will also stand out if it's potted up.
- Garden care: This is one of the hardier Sophoras, but even so, it may need some protection in colder regions - or in wet winters. Little pruning is needed, but it will benefit from an annual mulch of well-rotted organic matter.
