Small Yellow Wild Indigo is a shrubby perennial, and generally wider than it is tall. It features numerous bright yellow pea-like flowers, arising on stems that extend just above a mound of clover-like foliage. The mounded foliage is loosely compact, and the overall texture provides a distinct compliment to a variety of other plants. After blooming the flowers give way to small, inflated seed pods which turn black when ripe, offering good late season interest. Mature plants have a deep, extensive root systems and should not be disturbed once established.
