The crazy cool blooms of this compact plant make it worth having in the garden. Its interesting two-winged purple flowers which come and go all summer are quite attractive and definitely not something you will find elsewhere. We’ve found that Dwarf Polygala looks best when grown alone in a patio container. It is sometimes listed as Dwarf Sweet Pea Shrub but we aren’t crazy about that name because it is not in the Legume Family like Sweet Peas.
