A bold and very ornamental eastern North American native that produces beautiful clusters of lupine-like blue flowers from May through June. A bumblebee favourite! This drought tolerant plant was once used to make blue dye. After the flowers, swollen charcoal black seed pods about 5 cm (2") long form on stems that are in demand for dried flower arrangments. Loose seeds in the pods rattle when shaken. Grows in full sun or partial shade in a rich, well-drained soil. Height 60-90 cm (2-3') or more with an equal width. Absolutely underused in gardens and landscapes. Requires at least three years in the garden to show its full potential. If your intention is to commercially produce transplants, experiment for a few years to determine the best technique for your growing conditions. Perennial hardy to Zone 3.
