Hmm...I've grown "sensitive plant" as a houseplant for the past two years. I grew it from seed, and it bloomed pink. I even got a few seeds from it (I tried to pollinate it, and either I was successful or it did it itself). I still have the first one...it made it through the winter (indoor plant, remember), but I had to cut it back after it died back. It looks like it will bloom again..,and the new one will too.

Not sure if it is the same species or not...but from the map, it looks like its native range is more south than here.
