This is an easily-grown shrub with pea-like yellow or deep orange flowers, delicately pencilled in red throughout the summer followed by large, translucent, inflated bladder-like seed-pods. This is one of the amusing plants that children delight in 'popping', and I well remember being chased by an angry neighbour when I popped his pods!
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Germination usually occurs within 4 to 6 weeks although some seeds may take much longer.
