Cinders, it is a member of the papilionaceae or Fabaceae family and is indeed part of the pea family. I was fascinated to see how large this family is! Thank you!

Down here in Cornwall Karen I can grow it outside on the side of our cottage. Very often in flower for Boxing Day. You can also get a white one which is rather nice, so yours could have a companion. :o))
