Wild Indigo, Yellow

1 Quart
  • Pollinator value: High.  Bees, butterflies, Wild Indigo Duskywing larval host.

    Easy to grow; tolerant of a wide range of soil and light conditions, although full sun is best for blooming.  Needs 2 to 3 years to mature enough to flower.  Great garden staple and cheerful addition to a pollinator or butterfly garden.

    Tends to leaf out and become bushier after flowering -- which is awesome because the foliage is distinct and attractive.
