This beautiful deciduous native shrub fills with unique purple spiked flowers in May and June. This plant is adored by wildlife for its small seedpods, and pollinators love the flowers. It also serves as a host plant for some butterfly larvae. The False Indigo has small dark green deciduous leaves that are attractive in the garden. It is a workhorse when used in abandoned fields or along streambeds as it enriches heavy clay soils and stabilizes slopes.
