Angyo Snow Kirilow Indigo. The common name sounds almost like a poem. I might be overly fond of this genus, mainly because its species are so easy to grow. But another added advantage is the extremely long flowering period, but we are mostly limited to pink flowers until now. I found this selection is a small Japanese specialty nursery where it was unmarked, but just judging from the color of the leaves, it appeared to be a white flowering form of this 2-3' high subshrub. I wasn't at all disappointed, because the next spring, this plant was bathed in white. I can't find anything in the literature about a white flowering form of this species, so this may be a first introduction into the U.S. The cultivar name is mine, since the Japanese will not name many of their selections. Angyo is the nursery district near Tokyo, mostly in the Saitama Prefecture, hence the cultivar name 'Angyo Snow,' and snow is a rare occurence here, so this is appropriate for a rare find. This subshrub grows well in full sun to part shade with adequate drainage. We have no pest problems with this species at all. It is much more behaved in its growth habit than Indigofera decora, by not spreading and becoming almost invasive.
