(Indigofera australis)

Austral indigo is a mid-storey plant growing up to 2 metres high. It likes full sun to semi-shade so can be grown under taller trees. It is susceptible to frost when young, but very frost tolerant after 2 or 3 years.

An attractive garden plant, Austral indigo puts on a show of delicate pink flowers from August to December, that provide a pleasing contrast against its soft green leaves.

Butterflies are attracted to it for its nectar and food for caterpillars.
