Plant Description

Give your garden a pop of color with Dwarf Blue Wild Indigo.

  • Perennial Blue Wild Indigo only 18 inches tall.
  • Blooms have a deep purple color that will grab everyone’s attention.
  • Long lived, easy to grow and beautiful.

This is a dwarf, darker purple/blue flowering blue wild indigo that is infrequently found in alkaline glades and barrens in Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, and South Carolina. It forms 18-inch tall clumps of much smaller and closely spaced leaves than typical wild indigo and produces flower spikes that extend another six inches above the leaves. It is a little powerhouse of color! Plant this one in your dry, sunny garden where smaller is better. Try it with purple lovegrass, conradina, and eastern bergamot.
