Bladder senna is a gorgeous yellow pea-flower plant with a silly name.
What an unfortunate name for such a lovely, dainty plant Colutea arborescens has. But never mind, a bladder senna by any other name would look as pretty.
Still, the funny name comes from the seeds which come later in the year, which do look a bit like bladders if you’re in a silly mood.
This plant prefers full sun, although I found this particular specimen growing pretty cheerily in part shade. It also doesn’t mind poor soil or exposed conditions. Which is very obliging.
When you see the fruit, it is not such a silly name!
