Blue Wild Indigo Seeds       

Perennial. The blue-green foliage resembles a small rounded bush 2 to 3 feet in height. Tall spikes of deep blue flowers bloom above the foliage in May or June and turn into large charcoal black seed pods in late summer that are often used in flower arrangements. Has a deep taproot which permits it to withstand dry conditions and heat. Withstands prolonged droughts. Like many legumes False Indigo can fix nitrogen in the soil. No poisonings of pets have been recorded.
