Indigo is magenta

Indigo is magenta
It took me quite a while to put an ID to these little flowers, growing commonly alongside the road in the forested areas of Gippsland. Finally I have come up with what I think is the answer: they seem to be Australian Indigo Indigofera australis. Now, I would have thought that indigo is a shade of blue, but the reference says the flowers are "attractive pink to lilac..." and all the other details such as leaves seem to fit.

Can't say that I've seen these before, though the leaves do look familiar.

I was intrigued that these were so common on the roadside, Dave, though I can't recall previously seeing the flowers. I guess it's possible that they're just out for a short time.

Thanks Ton. I'd fully agree, but officially it's indigo, which is blue. :)
