Indigofera australis

  • Perennial to 200cm
  • Large pink to purple pea flowers
  • Attracts bees and butterflies

A slender perennial shrub growing to 2m, with sprays of 5-10cm long blue-green leaves. Spikes of large pink to purple pea-shaped flowers bloom in later winter and early spring, followed by thin seed pods. The flowers attract natives bees and butterflies. Native to all states of Australia from south west Western Australia to tropical Queensland. Suitable to grow in a mixed border, as an understory beneath trees or mass planted. Also known as 'Australian Indigo' or 'Hill Indigo'.

Note: Seeds of many native plants are dormant and will not germinate until ideal environmental conditions are met. Follow instructions for pre-treatment and sowing, and be patient; some wild harvested seeds can take much longer to germinate than expected.
