Plant Description

As a summertime hedge or a group of plants toward the rear of the garden, White Wild Indigo is sure to be a show stopper. Spikes of rich white pea-like flowers rise above bluish-green foliage in early summer. The upper parts of the spikes and the bracts holding the flowers are charcoal gray, so the color combination is beautiful. This perennial needs full sun and average moisture conditions. It resents being disturbed so plant it where it can remain for years. Try using the flowers as fresh cut flowers for something really unusual.
