‘Little Volcano’ typically grows to 3-6’ tall with a spread to 6-10’ wide. It originated in the garden of Dr. Shibamichi in the subtropical Ryukyu Islands (Japan) located in the East China Sea. This shrub is most noted for producing a profuse late summer to early fall bloom of pea-like flowers (occasionally with some bloom in spring) on arching, cascading branches. Small trifoliate dark green leaves turn gold in fall after bloom.
