Indigobush, Psorothamnus fremontii, is currently exploding in bloom throughout Red Rock Canyon. You will see brilliant dark blue to purple flowers growing on the tops of this two to six foot gray-green shrub alongside SR-159 and the Scenic Drive. If you get close to one, gently touch the leaves and stems of the indigobush to experience a pleasant smell. The flowers and stems of indigobush were smashed by Native Americans to create a yellow dye.
