“Bring a touch of blue to your garden with our Neelamari (True Indigo) plant. This ornamental plant showcases beautiful blue flowers and has traditional medicinal uses. It’s a perfect addition to any garden or landscape.”

True indigo, also known as Indigofera tinctoria, is a plant species in the family Fabaceae, commonly cultivated for its blue dye. The plant is native to tropical regions of Asia, and has been used for thousands of years to produce a deep blue dye that has been prized for its intense color and resistance to fading.

The indigo dye is obtained from the leaves of the plant, which contain a chemical compound called indican. When the leaves are fermented in water, the indican is converted into indigo, which can be extracted and used to dye textiles and other materials. True indigo is one of the oldest and most widely used natural dyes in the world, and has been used to color fabrics and textiles for centuries.

In addition to its use as a dye, true indigo has been used in traditional medicine for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. The plant contains a range of phytochemicals, including tannins, flavonoids, and alkaloids, that have been shown to have various health benefits.

True indigo is a perennial plant that grows up to 2 meters in height, with a woody stem and compound leaves that are pinnate in shape. The plant produces small, pink or purple flowers in late summer, followed by long seed pods that contain the seeds for the next generation.

Today, true indigo is still cultivated for its dye, and is used in various industries, including textile production, cosmetics, and food coloring. It is also grown as an ornamental plant in gardens and landscapes, and is valued for its attractive foliage and showy flowers.
