Japanese Indigo


Persicaria tinctoria


I have fallen in love with the indigo plant- this variety- Persicaria tinctoria specifically.   It grows surprisingly well in our Northwest climate and has produced an abundance of leaves for dying.  I harvested the plants down to the ground three times for fresh indigo dye projects as well as for fermenting for homegrown indigo pigment and they were undaunted!  I have a limited amount of seed available so order early!  


For best results start indoors in April to transplant out in mid-late May.  They need warmth to get going.  Germination is naturally variable so oversow if possible.  Space 12" apart.  


Packet contains ~25 seeds
