HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Since this plant does not transplant well, large yellow wild indigo flower seeds should be direct sown. The seed will need to be scarified; to accomplish this, pour 150 degrees F water over the seed and let it soak overnight the day before planting. In late fall, plant the seeds 1/2" deep. For spring planting, the scarified seed will need to be mixed with moist sand and stored in the refrigerator for 10 days before planting. Germination should take place within 15-20 days.

Growing: This plant tolerates clay, gravel, and sand and can also thrive in poor soil. It tolerates drought well, but it also benefits from occasional watering. Though long-lived, the plants develop slowly and may not flower until their second or third season. The foliage may be pruned for neat growth after blooming, though this will prevent the development of the seed pods. The yellow wild indigo plant will go dormant over winter, and can be cut down to 6" after the foliage dies. Eventually, the plants will spread by rhizomes. White Wild Indigo is a host plant for the Indigo Dusky Wing and Zarucco Dusky Wing butterflies, though the foliage can be fatal to grazing animals.

Harvesting: The foliage and seed pods of this flower both dry well and make attractive additions to dried flower arrangements.

Seed Saving: When ripe, the seed pods will turn black; cut them off and spread them out to dry away from direct sunlight. Split the pods open to remove the seed. Store large yellow wild indigo flower seeds in a cool, dry place.

I'd love to actually have s review but I've never received the seeds, twice. They said they're on the way. I even ordered them from Amazon, which comes from Evereilde. Never received those either. Frustrating!

indigo

I saw this on one of my gardening sites and had to get me some seeds to try it.Now I am wondering can I try it now or is it too late this year?I am in 8a zone.I love the way you all ship out so quickly and your packaging is awesome.I have ordered twice with quick action from your end both times.

These should either be planted in the fall so they can naturally go through the cold winter cycle or they should be planted in the spring after having been stratified.

Baptisia seeds

When one of my regular suppliers canceled Baptisia from my order, I did a Google search for another supplier. After looking at a few I selected Everwilde because they had a few other types that I wanted to try. The ordering process and shipping were both seamless and prompt. If the seeds perform as expected, Everwilde will become a regular source for my cut flower operation.

DESCRIPTION

Bursting with bright yellow blossoms, this robust perennial grows larger each year. It is very long-lived and drought resistant.
Large 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. Native Americans and early settlers once used various species of this plant family to make a blue dye, since the superior true indigo dye was expensive and not easily obtained. As a member of the nitrogen-fixing legume family, indigo makes an excellent choice for soil that needs replenishment of its nutrients. The genus name "baptisia" comes from a Greek word meaning "to dye."
