Sensitive Plant is a popular plant because of its curiosity value. The fern-like leaves close up and droop when touched, usually reopening in a few minutes. The stems are prickly, and it has small, fluffy, lavender, Sputnik-shaped flowers in mid-summer. Sensitive Plant is an excellent container plant which can be used as a summer annual or as an indoor houseplant. Provide full sun and allow to dry slightly between waterings. Water abundantly in summer and sparingly in winter. Sold in a 4.5″ Pot 1.37 Pt. (648 ml.).
