A fast-growing, colourful and hardy shrub with eye-catching purple pea-shaped flowers. Polygala 'Little Poly' is a smaller more compact variety, making it perfectly suited to border planting, and with its compact growing habit it looks great in a pot too. Polygala likes light, well-draining but not wet soil. It flowers best in full sun but can also tolerate dappled light, and flowers year round. Polygala grows well in coastal spots.
