Sophora tomentosavar. truncata : Necklacepod
A young Necklacepod in the Pier Park on the north end of Anna Maria, highly drought and salt tolerant.
Here is a pair of mature plants along the path through a dune field.
Necklacepod puts out long curvy stems of bright yellow blooms multiple times during the year.
They are followed by the signature necklace-like berries.
A native 'green' Necklacepod has shiny green leaves unlike the greyish hairy leaves of this non-native one.
