Corkbush. Very free flowering and distinctly garden worthy, this rare-in-the-trade, South African native makes an excellent shrub or small tree, 6'-10' tall. Outstanding sprays of purple/lilac, pea-like flowers cover the shrub from early Spring through Summer, attracting butterflies. Great plant for bonsai!
Mundulea sericea is easily cultivated from seed. Soak the seeds overnight in hot water and plant them the next day in a mixture of riversand (vercumilite and or perlite will also do) and potting mix (60:40 ratio). Germination takes place from about 1 week and continues until about 3 months later.
