Note: Indian Milkvetch is about 10 to 12 inches tall in bloom. In my area, it blooms in mid-July. It has attractive, grayish-green foliage and white flowers with a tint of purple-blue. It has a tidier habit than Astragalus alpinus, which was growing alongside A. australis. (Sent: Alpineemail@example.com)
