Plant re- identification at GC this morning!

15 comments


Couldn’t believe my eyes whilst visiting the local GC when suddenly spied the so called “Rhobinia” but sporting the real name….."Indigo indigofera himalayensis.Silk Road!!!!…..There it was in full flower! I feel I do have to apologise to all of you who helped with identifying the shrub.So sorry!……looking at “silk road” it does ring a distant bell!!!!!! If any of you find it for sale in your GC do buy it.It is so pretty!

Needs plenty of room though - grown it myself, had to take it out after 5 years... Needs a sheltered spot.
