SENSITIVE PLANT SEEDS~~!!

This facinating little plant grows only 2-3 feet tall with leaves that are sensitive and folds together when touched and then unfolds when left alone ~~!!  Makes a perfect houseplant. Children and adults alike are drawn to this plant for various reasons.  Pink lilac ball shaped flowers emerge in middle of summer.  Perfect for science or kids projects

Other Common Names: Cat's Claw Sensitive Briar, Sensitive Brier, Sensitive Plant, Shame Briar, Shame Face, Shame Jim, Shame Vine, Shameweed, Shaming Judy
Duration: Perennial
Bloom Time: Summer
Height: 24” to 36”

USDA Zone: 5a-11
Germination: No pre-treatment needed. Sow seeds just below soil surface at 70F and water.


A more fitting common name couldn't be given to this native perennial than 'Cat's Claw Sensitive Plant.' A member of the mimosa family, the leaves fold up when touched or disturbed, and the recurved thorns along the semi-woody vine makes it clear that this plant does not want to be disturbed! Bright pink star-burst flowers bloom in congested bunches, followed by long, slender, prickle covered seed pods. Highly nutritious for livestock, the absence of this wildflower can be an indication of overgrazing.
