Coronilla valentina – Mediterranean Crown Vetch

This evergreen shrub has a spidery growth habit and grows to about 0.8M. Fragrant, bright yellow flowers cover this plant for a long period over winter.

To the best of my knowledge these four plants are the only specimens of Coronilla valentina in New Zealand. I had to buy seed from Portugal and pass the phytosanitary requirements of MPI to bring them into New Zealand. However, it is a glorious plant and definitely one that I shall be trying to share around.
