White False Indigo

White False Indigo
Nitrogen Fixing Prairie Legume

Nitrogen fixing member of the pea family that works best in sandy soils but tolerates a variety, including very wet soils. Similar to the blue indigo, but a larger plant with white flowers on long stalks up to 6 ft. tall. Pods hang on late in the fall and make for an interesting display into the winter. Long-lived. Easy to flower in full sun. Have seen this plant growing in pure subsoil with little organic matter. Our plants were grown from seed found along a public right of way in central Michigan. We also offer seeds of this plant too. (See the seed section)

 

*White False Indigo seeds also available
