Amorpha False Indigo Bush

(Amorpha fruiticosa)

Full to Part Sun. Native nitrogen fixing shrub up to 18′ tall, but can be coppiced

Amorpha fruiticosa is an attractive native wildflower shrub. It is a legume, and is often used in permaculture plantings as a nitrogen fixer – usually with the plan to coppice the bush (“chop & drop”) because it will reach a fairly substantial size if not chopped down frequently. 15-18′ tall and spreading up to twice that width. NOT edible, it’s practical benefits are mostly beauty, nitrogen fixing and soil stabilization, and it also has some potential as a natural insecticide. Fast growing, thornless. Nitrogen Fixer. North American native plant.
