Amorpha canescens A very slow-growing, deep-rooted shrub from the Canadian Prairies, with delightful finely dissected pinnate foliage and spikes of purple blooms in July. It is truly small-scaled, seldom over 18″ high, and thus suitable for rock gardens. Extremely drought-resistant once established. Because of its very slow growth, it is seldom available in the nursery trade.
Beaux Arbres has a few five-year old plants for sale. It is a species we love, and will continue to propagate, but after these older plants sell, it will be five more years before equally large specimens of Leadplant are available again.
Growing conditions: Full sun and well-drained soil.
