Description
 

Woad has been used for centuries to obtain a blue dye, it is said a hundred weight of leaves yields 10 lbs of dye and is quite an elaborate process to extract. However it is easy to grow this ancient plant and, as Richard Mabey describes in one of his books, worth it.’An attractive plant with 1m high stems, long succulent leaves which shine like stained glass, with inner blue;foamy clusters and brilliant yellow flowers; pendant fiddle shaped seeds’. The seeds may also turn blue/purple in wet weather.
