Need some Va Va Voom in the garden?  Look no further than this recently introduced 'False Indigo' cultivar from North America which sports chunky spikes of eye-catching lemon yellow pea-like flowers that open gradually from smoky purple buds up the stem.  This complementary colour wheel combination is very striking, highlighted further by mounds of delicate blue-green foliage.  

Flowering from late spring into early summer, once the blooms fade its value to the garden continues with the production of dark dangling seed pods, an unusual addition to the autumn garden.  Use its intense hue to refresh and lift more sombre colours or showcase it with cool whites and apple greens.  A great choice for a sunny, free draining border, make room for it in your cutting garden too as the blooms last well in water.  Butterflies love it.
