Scarlet pea

My transplanted scarlet pea (Indigofera miniata) is happy. This lovely but oft-ignored native usually gets mowed.

Hey Sheryl, where did you find the plant/seeds? I'm in San Antonio and am interested in planting scarlet pea/Texas indigo.

Hi, Carmen: I dug this one up and successfully relocated it to our garden. You might look for a young one along street easements that typically get mowed. This is a low-lying plant. It's so beautiful, right?

Hey Sheryl, very beautiful. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for it. Thanks for the info.
