Hi, does anyone know the name of this plant. It's become really straggly this year, with very few flowers and not many leaves, know why??

That's Sophora microphylla 'Sun King'...I know because I bought one at the w/end!!

Someone else with longer acquaintanceship with this plant will be able to tell you the 'why' bit, Mandy, as I've only just planted mine!

Thanks SH, I've had mine for 5 years and it's always beautiful this time of year, so I'm quite worried about it at the moment. I did manage to rescue some seed pods from it though if does bite the dust:-(

I do hope it doesn't!
