Description

The leaves are pinnate (feather-like) and bright green in spring / summer before showing some yellow tints in a good, crisp autumn before falling.

In midsummer, Amorpha fruticosa has slender racemes of pretty deep purple-blue, nearly black flowers with bright golden stamen. These flowers are very popular with insects and butterflies. An attractive and unusual flowering shrub, ideal for a sunny border!
