This genus includes the so-called French honeysuckle, Hedysarum coronarium, which is usually a biennial (sometimes perennial) with dense heads of deep red, fragrant pea-like flowers in summer. Height about 3 ft.

H. multijugum is a deciduous shrub which is rather taller, to about 5 ft. with a lax habit, greyish-green leaves and rosy-purple flowers. It is easily increased by seed.
