PersicTinct-GRAINE

Availability: Available

Polygonaceae. Asia (Southeast). L0.8 x 0.8m H m. Z7 to Z13. Annual. Variable plant sometimes resembling its European cousin the knotweed (Persicaria maculosa). Japanese Indigo is cultivated for its dyeing properties, as one of the purest and easiest to extract sources of Indigo. It is also one of the plants of traditional Chinese medicine. The fast-growing Persicaria tinctoria needs warmth, frequent watering, fertile soil, and full sun exposure to produce abundant Indigo. Its large, tender green leaves are very aesthetic. At the end of summer, a multitude of graceful spikes bearing white or pink fragrant flowers appear above the foliage, allowing the use of Japanese Indigo as an ornamental plant too. The plant and its seeds are both frost  tender. Sow warm in pots in March or April and plant in the ground after the last risk of frost. Harvest the foliage in July for a higher Indigo content. 1 packet of 20 seeds, harvest of the year
