INDIGOFERA (INDIGO)

(deciduous leaf-losing)

Indigofera gerardiana, A to 8 ft. (grows to its full height if against a wall), an attractive, quite hardy shrub, with long shoots bearing leaves made up of small leaflets and short spikes of purple pea-flowers after midsummer. Plant from October to February in a sheltered position or against a wall to prevent damage by frost. Cut back shoots to ground level in the winter if planted in the open.
