Indigofera amblyantha, commonly called indigofera or indigo, is a deciduous, spreading shrub that is native to forest margins and streambanks in central to south central China. It typically grows in a rounded form to 4-6' tall and as wide. It is perhaps best noted for producing a very long bloom (May to September) of attractive pale lilac to rose to pink pea-shaped flowers in narrow vertical racemes (2-5" long) growing from the leaf axils. Flowers are followed by dark purple seed pods. Each compound odd-pinnate leaf (4-6" long) has 7-13 ovate gray-green leaflets (each to 1 1/4" long). No appreciable fall color. Genus name comes from indigo plus Latin fero meaning to bear. The dye indigo is obtained from this genus.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring. We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture."
