Should I plant Amorpha fruticosa (indigo bush)? xpost
I received two seedlings of indigo bush. The plan was to plant them in a sunny/part sunny clearing in the woods. The soil is clay, but I amend plantings with compost and soil conditioner.
Indigo bush is apparently tolerant of drought, which is important for me because I won't be able to water it frequently. The objective is to provide habitat and foodstuffs for wildlife. So far in that area I've planted yaupon holly, Arizona cypress, common milkweed, and butterfly milkweed, none of which have died yet.
Indigo bush is considered a noxious weed in two states. I am in East Tennessee.
Does anyone have any experience with invasiveness of indigo bush?
Thanks for any advice.
