Looking for a windbreak or a solution to prevent soil erosion? Look no further than the Amorpha fruticosa, also known as the Desert False Indigo or Bastard Indigobush. This glandular, thornless shrub can reach up to 10 ft in height and spread to twice that in width, making it a great option for landscaping and conservation efforts. Plus, its fast, coarse growth makes it ideal for dry, poor soil. Dark purple or purplish blue flowers in spikes add a pop of color to any landscape. But this plant isn't just pretty - it contains beneficial compounds that counteract diabetes and metabolic disorders. So why not add some Amorpha fruticosa to your garden today?
