This native, and highly adaptable species grows up to 16 feet tall from multiple stems and prefers wet, nutritionally rich soil.  With the ability to grown from an extensive root system, False Indigo is a great species for stabilizing shorelines.  Older False Indigo stems have smooth, grey bark while young stems have light green with leave which are four to eight inches long.  The deep purple to reddish brown fragrant flowers arrange in spike clusters around 6 inches long and ½ to one inch in diameter.  The flowers are attractive to many pollinators including several bees, as well as caterpillars, butterflies and moths.
