Sensitive brier from Mary, SC

Posted on |

Is this related to the allium family, grown on dry, sandy soil?

Hi Mary,

no, not at all related to allium, which is a type of lily, this is another member of the bean family, once called Schrankia microphylla and now called Mimosa microphylla, the sensitive brier.
