Sophora tomentosa Necklace pod Kayu penawar Leguminosae

Sophora tomentosa, Necklace pod, Leguminosae, kayu penawar

Stunning yellow flower is just the kind that hummingbirds and other pollinators really go for. Soft, velvety foliage with hues of silver. Necklace pod is native to coastal areas of South Florida and the Caribbean, so has good salt tolerance, and does best in sunny, well-drained locations. Height varies from 5 to 10 feet or taller. Takes trimming well. Don't hedge it! Trim it naturally, and let it develop a canopy.

Medical use: In Indonesia, cures scable: ulcus/koreng.
