|Necklace Pod||Sophora tomentosa|
The dainty leaves, pretty yellow flower stalks, and attractive seed pods make Necklace Pod a nice garden bush. It also makes a nice hedge.
I've been told that there are both native and non-native species of Necklace Pod, and that the non-native plants have fuzzier leaves giving them a more powder-silver look. The brand new leaves on both kinds are fuzzy, but the top of the mature native Necklace Pod leaves are glossy and smooth.
