Indigofera Australis (Australian Indigo, Austral Indigo) is a lovely ornamental shrub with an open but arching soft habit. It is fast growing with light green fern like foliage which in Spring gives way to a profusion of pink sprays pea shaped flowers. The flowers are butterfly attracting another lovely feature to this plant.
Perfect for the native/cottage garden. It is low maintenance once established, tolerates a variety of soils but must be well-drained. If you would like a denser shrub you will need to start pruning when small.
Planting: Cultivate soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from container and place into the hole so that soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly and water in even if the soil is moist.
Care: Always ensure regular watering is provided for your new plants. The plants may need watering for around 12 weeks or until they are established depending on time of year and weather conditions once planted.
Good mulching will assist to reduce weeds and maintain moisture levels. Maintain fresh growth, shape and promote dense habit by pruning after main flowering time. Feed in early Spring with a low phosphorus fertiliser.
Using tubestock is a great advantage for planting in your garden as they will establish quickly with the appropriate care.
Plants are supplied as tubestock in 42mm wide pots. Your plant will be established in its pot and ready to plant out.
