False indigo (Amorpha fruticosa) is a 6-10 ft., loose, airy deciduous shrub found in moist ground along streams, rocky banks, and low, wet woods. Foliage is fine-textured and generally limited to the upper third of the plant. The bottlebrush-looking flowers are deep purple with bright yellow stamens that extend beyond the petals, crowded on 2 to 6 inch spike-like clusters at the end of the branches from April to June. Bees and butterflies are attracted to the flowers.
Uses: False Indigo can be used for erosion control and wetlands restoration. Wildlife benefits are food and cover - seeds are eaten by quail and other wildlife.
