Blue Wild Indigo has masses of beautiful spikes of indigo pea-like flowers rising above the foliage from mid spring to early summer, which are most effective when planted in groupings. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its round compound leaves emerge lime green in spring, turning olive green in color throughout the season. Spent flowers can be deadheaded or left to form seedpods, which serve as a textural interest in winter. Cut back to the ground in early spring. Blue False Indigo is native to Indiana.
