Asian plants, mostly Indigofera tinctoria (aka Indigofera sumatrana) were the original source for the dye, with several thousand square kilometers of the plants grown in India around 1900.

A variant found in the Americas is Indigofera suffruticosa, known as añil in the West Indies. The name for now-synthetic aniline dyes comes from this name.
