Common indigobush is a perennial shrub that reproduces by seeds. It is deciduous and is often found growing in dense thickets along streams and lakeshores. Honey bees are the main visitors to indigobush. Bees visit the plant throughout the day during the flowering period. Honey yield heavily depends on season; pollen yield rich and regular.
