Murasaki Dye Plant


Lithospermum erythrohizon. Also known as purple gromwell, Murasaki makes a rich purple dye. Like Madder, the color is extracted from the roots and plants need 2-3 years to grow to harvestable size. The plants themselves are rather plain, but not unattractive tucked into a border or corner. CanĀ  take some shade.
