Fan-Leaf Indigofera Overview

The Fynbos Biome is the home of the characteristic dwarf shrub, Indigofera flabellata, with irregular branches and beautiful rose-purple flowers that attract various insects. These flowers give rise to a pod, clothed in minute hairs. This species is less utilized and rarely known, and thrives in open mountainous area, with adequate winter rainfall, and produces odd-numbered leaf-pairs.
