Astragalus (Mediterranean Milkvetch)

Milkvetch is a very broad genus with many different growth habits from annuals to herbaceous perennials and woody sub-shrubs. They are native of temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. They have feathered leaves and pea-like flowers in many shades from white to bright pink. Easily grown in any rich well, drained soil in a sunny spot. Perennials species and woody sub-shrubs are excellent in a protected spot in the rock garden.
Sow seeds flat in any rich, well drained soil and keep pots in a protected spot outside. Seeds require a prolonged cooling period prior to germination in late spring. Carefully transplant young plants to the final spot in the garden as soon as they are strong enough or in autumn after leaves have withered.
All are USDA Climate Zone 8/9.
