Indigofera australis

Austral Indigo, Australian Indigo

Flowers are sprays of soft purple through to pink from mid-September to November. Lovely soft blue green lacy foliage. Form can be variable, pruning will give a neater dense form, leaving alone will lend to a more delicate open arching form.

The flowers are an excellent pollen and nectar source for many native insects. Butterfly attracting.
Frost hardy (light frosts). Fast growing. Sun to part shade.
