Planting Instructions:
Sow outdoors in late fall/early winter. For spring planting, soak seeds in hot water overnight before planting outdoors or in seed starting medium.

Additional Tips:
Wild Indigos mature slowly, taking up to 2-3 to produce flowers, but are well worth the wait.

Once established, blue wild indigo will remain healthy for several years.  It requires a minimum of maintenance in the garden.

Companion Plants:
Plant with peonies, lanceleaf coreopsis.
