Can anyone identify a plant I've seen in a garden please. It's about 4 feet tall, shrub -like with pinate pale green leaves and clusters of BLUE pea-like flowers that smell strongly of coconut. Thanks
I'd need a photo Lin.
Check out Galega officinalis. That has coconut scented blue pea like flowers (so they tell me, never found any scent on ours).
I've never caught a whiff of that either Berghill. Is it shrub like enough? You'd never mistake mine for shrubs
It was the only plant I could find with the description given. Dug it out ages ago as it is such a thug.
It does get about a bit
Perhaps a photo will appear or more info (please)
My thanks for replies. Unfortunately I can't produce a photo as it's not in my garden, but having looked up your suggestion of Galega I think you might be right. Certainly looks similar but nowhere can I find any mention of the coconut smell which was very marked and I would have thought would be a real pointer for identification.
Lin - if you google Hardys plants it mentions that Galega has a coconut smell.
Great - will do. Many thanks. Sounds as if the mystery is solved!
I'm going for a sniff
Couldn't smell anything at all, but there are very few flowers left and it's cool and breezy
