Sophora macrocarpa
This tender shrub can only withstand temperatures down to -5°C so it must be grown on a south-facing wall in England.

      I have only seen this flower in this garden. Very unusual. But also very pretty.

  2. What a glorious and unusual colour, and stunning success with every bloom.

      I’m surprised that I haven’t seen this elsewhere, especially here in Cornwall where it should be mild enough to grow.

  3. Pretty! Not familiar with this one.

      No, me neither. Have only seen it in this one garden in Herefordshire.
