MIMOSA PUDICA or SENSITIVE PLANT

Its rose-coloured flowers are less the attraction than the peculiarity, which gives it its popular name, of a touch of the hand causing its leaves to droop. Grow from seed in heat in spring and pot up in a mixture of peat, loam and sand. Height about 1 ft. Although perennial, it is not usually long-lived and is best treated as an annual.
