False Indigo Bush (Amorph fruticosa) grows as a glandular, thornless shrub that can reach 4 to 5 meters in height and spread to twice that in width. It originates from the central and eastern parts of North America where it grows in rare deciduous forests and prairies. It was first introduced in Europe in 1724 as an ornamental species, while it appeared on our territory in the first decade of the last century. The species grows on moist soils along riverbanks, streams, ponds, in ditches, in open and semi-open moist forests, displacing native species. It even develops well on both acidic and neutral and base soils, and has adapted to barren, dry and sandy soils. It grows equally well in heavy conditions where the water retains for most of the year as well as on saline soils. On the invasiveness scale, it is classified as a highly invasive plant.
