Plant Species of the genus Psoralea

Information about this genus
Name: Psoralea
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Cold hardiness varies with the species, though few will tolerate anything but the lightest of frosts. Inclined to be rather untidy open-growing plants, they can be kept compact if pruned after flowering. They prefer to grow in light but reasonably moist soil that is well drained and will flower best if grown in full sun. Propagate from seed or half-hardened cuttings.
Description: Found mainly in the Americas and South Africa, this genus of perennials and evergreen shrubs is made up of around 150 species. Their leaves, which are often narrow, sometimes scale-like, and may be single, trifoliate or pinnate, are often downy or hairy. Clusters of pea-like white or blue flowers appear at various times and are followed by insignificant brown seed pods.
