A dwarf growing Shrub Bush Clover. Rosy purple pea florets on innumerable racemes stud the foliage for weeks on end in summer. The soft looking alternate trifoliate leaves are clean green all season and sometimes turn yellow to gold in autumn, sometimes not. In the north ‘Yakushima’ usually dies to the crown; but not to worry, it recovers with vigor when temperatures warm. And as ‘Yakushima’ blooms on new wood it will provide an amazing summer show annually. Farther south it will behave as a subshrub and sprout from old wood.
