The slightly arching branches of this small, deciduous shrub are covered in attractively divided, mid green foliage. In late spring and early summer, these branches are also laden with short, upright clusters of small, pea-like, pinkish-purple blooms. It will thrive in a sunny spot, although heavy soils should be avoided, especially those that hold water for any length of time in winter. If in doubt, pot it up into a container and place it on a sunny patio. Garden care: Remove dead or damaged stems in late winter, or in colder areas, cut back to a low framework as the buds begind to expand in early spring.
