Our original cuttings of this compact form of the Chinese native Indigofera kirilowii came from the late Christopher Lloyd via designer Edith Eddleman. We assigned it the cultivar name Indigofera kirilowii 'Christo' to distinguish it from the other forms appearing in the market. The 18" tall, upright pea-foliaged stems arise from a slow-moving (NOT INVASIVE) rhizome. In good soils, expect a 6-8' wide patch in 20 years. The miniature, wisteria-like pink flower clusters (6" long) cascade from the tops of the stems in spring and into early summer...WOW!
