They may also be increased by layering the lower branches, however, seeds are the best means of propagation. Some kinds of Styrax produce a highly fragrant, balsamic resin called Benzoin. It is used in lotions, perfumes, tooth powders and incense and as an expectorant, inhalant and an antiseptic for external use.

Swainsona formosa, Clianthus formosus, Clianthus dampieri
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Faboideae
Sturt's desert pea
Origin: Central Australia
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowers

Ornamental groundcover with large black-centred red pea flowers over summer. Needs good drainage and a sunny position. Avoid watering on foliage. Moderately frost tolerant. In cultivation the desert pea is regarded as difficult and few people attempt to grow it. However it can be grown successfully in many areas if treated as an annual. Success is often reported by growing the plant in a deep container an a sunny, frost-free position. Propagation is best from seed which should be pretreated by scarification (using sheets of sandpaper) or by soaking in hot water. Seed is best sown where the plants are to be grown as seedlings are reported to be difficult to transplant. Sowing in late winter or early spring would be best if frost is a problem.
