Yellow Wild Indigo grows in sandy, dry areas or open woods; its deep tap root gives it protection from the drought and prairie fires of its native ground. In the autumn, its stem gives way and allows the dry bush to tumble in the wind. Native Americans and early settlers once used various species of this plant family to make a yellow dye. One of its common names, Horseflyweed, comes from its historical use as a fly repellent on the harnesses of workhorses. As a member of the nitrogen-fixing legume family, indigo makes an excellent choice for soil that needs replenishment of its nutrients.
