Plant Description

A very showy plant of open woods and streamsides, Blue Wild Indigo is a good one for the sunny perennial border or wood's edge where soils are not very acidic. Four- to fifteen-inch long spikes of deep blue-purple pea-shaped flowers appear in late spring followed by attractive pods. Plants grow in bushy, branched clumps 2 to 5 feet tall and have clover-shaped leaves. This is an easy, low maintenance species especially attractive with Amsonia, Coreopsis, Penstemon, Coneflowers, grasses, and Peonies. It is definitely one of our top ten favorites!
