Textile art from the Heart of Nature
I was looking for a list of best dye plants for a youth garden in Alabama. Could you provide one? Thanks.
While I don’t yet have a comprehensive list for each state– I believe
that you have access to ‘poke weed berries’. You can google pokeberry and see more about that plant. I also think you might have access to staghorn sumac– check out the USDA plant database and search these two species under their ‘common name’ and a map will appear. If you click on your state I think you’ll get to see county by county. There is a dyer in Missouri Carol Leigh of Hillcreek Fiber Studio who works with both these species– and has said they are throughout the Southeast.
