A native North American wildflower, False Indigo is an excellent choice for sunny gardens all over the continent. Plants form a tall, bushy clump of grey-green foliage, with long spikes of pea-like flowers, in shades of violet-blue. A good substitute for Lupines, in areas where they are difficult to grow. Makes an excellent cut flower, also attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant, once established. Plants may be increased by dividing in spring, every 4 to 5 years, or by moving any seedlings that may appear, while they are still small.
