Colutea Copper Beauty is vigorous, deciduous shrub with pinnate green leaves and bright orange pea-type flowers that mature into long bronze pods. It’s a good choice for informal mixed borders and low maintenance gardens.

Colutea are a family of shrubs native to Africa and across to Asia. They are often called Bladder Senna and grow wild in many non-native countries including the UK where it’s often seen along railway embankments. Colutea Copper Beauty is a variety with traditional pinnate blue-green leaves and bright orange pea-type flowers. The blooms are veined orange-red and have yellow centres. In late summer they mature to bladder-like eight-centimetre long red-purple seed pods. The pods are excellent in dried flower arrangements unless children pop them first.

This is an interesting easy-grow shrub with a blast of exciting colour in the summer months.

How To Care For Colutea Copper Beauty

Pruning isn’t required. You can leave it to its own devices, or if you’d like to maintain its height, cut away excess growth in winter and remove any crossed branches.
Water it well until you see new growth and apply a thick layer of mulch to the roots in early spring. Put container grown specimens on pot feet for good drainage. Colutea does not like soggy roots.
