“Also known as Baptisia, this is the crown jewel of the prairie. It’s beautiful vibrant blue color buds and flowers dot the North American landscape from Florida to the Midwest. Feminine in nature and associates in folklore with Venus, False Indigo is often a representation of protection and love.
Indigo was prized by early American farmers like George Washington for its beautiful color and was used as a dye to obtain the dark blue colors in fabric. The original flowers were picked at Mount Vernon from the descendants of those plantations.”
