$ 18.00


Japanese Indigo Seeds

Each packet contains 15g / ½ oz/ 2 tablespoons of Japanese Indigo (Polygonum tinctorium, Persicaria tinctoria) seeds.

These are the pink flowering variety.
I did a test planting of these seeds in a "Burpee's Greenhouse" and had a very high rate of germination!

For more info be sure to check out my blog post How Does My Garden Grow

I recommend growing guidelines available at

Seeds are best started indoors and planted outside after the last frost.
These seeds are from my garden in Roanoke, Virginia and the plants were harvested for the seeds in the Fall of 2022 for Spring planting 2023.
Japanese Indigo produces tiny flowers that are much loved by bees and butterflies!!
Because I winnowed by hand, expect some other plant material mixed in with them.
While not all seeds will germinate you should have enough to plant a 1000-foot-row.

You can refrigerate leftover seeds to keep for next year.
