The common name of this plant alludes to its charming ability to close its leaves at the slightest touch. Children will love this, as most will refuse to admit that plants can move until they see this in action. Plants produce fluffy pink flowers, and tend to become straggly with age - seed can be collected to grow new bushy plants. Outside its native Central and South America it is now a serious weed, not a problem in the UK due to its sensitivity to frost.
