Woad yields a blue dye famously used and worn by ancient Britons and Celts, though the flowers are yellow. The dye comes from the first year’s leaves using a complicated recipe! It flowers in the second year and sometimes lives to flower in a third year, but mostly behaves as a biennial. The flowers are numerous, small bright yellow clusters. It grows in any neutral garden soil.
