Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
This is a treasured North American native wildflower with a confusing name. Wild Indigo, a closely related species, has yellow flowers, but the stems yielded a pale blue dye, thus the name. This one actually has blue flowers, but none of the group has ever been very successful in coloring, the name notwithstanding. Today, this beautiful wildflower, though quite common in many areas, is rare in others. It is "threatened" which means quite rare, in Maryland and Indiana, and actually officially listed as "endangered" in Ohio. It's a great plant for the wildflower collector.
No Seeds in packet: 15-20
