Goat's rue is an informal plant that looks best scrambling amongst low branches of shrubs, which support the handsome foliage and allow the stems of lavender mini-sweet pea flowers to space themselves out and make a good display. If left unsupported plants may, in rich soil, trail over the ground or form untidy hillocks, and are best supported with twiggy pea sticks to raise them up off the ground. In good growing conditions plants self seed, so deadhead in borders. In wild gardens self-sown seedlings produce a delightful natural effect.

I love this miniature Sweet-Pea.Delicate and dainty with pale lilac flowers.
Mine is about 2" high and is green and lush with all the rain we've had. Dead heading creates more flowers elsewhere on the plant. This is in my cottage garden.
