NW Himalayas. Although our specimen has never achieved the height potential suggested in some texts, it does form an impressive shrub. Its very textural, pinate leaves are blue green on arching purple stems. Terminal racemes of purple pink pea-flowers open on upright stems. The six-inch racemes can bear more than 24 individual flowers. The narrow, tubular red brown seed pods of Indigofera heterantha are also ornamental.
