DECADENCE® VANILLA CREAM FALSE INDIGO

Breeder
Buy Decadence® Vanilla Cream False Indigo online. Selected for its petite size and unique flowers, this cultivated perennial fits easily into today's suburban landscapes. Newly emerging spring foliage has a beautiful bronze cast which contrasts nicely with other spring green perennials planted nearby. As the foliage matures, it lightens to grey-green and forms a well-branched, full, rounded clump. Ten inch long spikes of pastel yellow buds open to creamy vanilla colored flowers from late spring into early summer. Seed pods begin to develop immediately after the plant is finished flowering, deepening in color and persisting into fall. This easy care, drought tolerant, deer resistant perennial is an excellent choice for gardeners looking for low maintenance or native perennials.
