Lupinus hybrids
Lupinus hybrids

Common name lupine
Family fabaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers mixed colors
Size 3 ft
Light full sun-part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil (not too dry)
Seed ripensearly July

Striking color spikes in late spring-early summer. Will self-seed moderately if allowed to drop seeds. We do, since in our garden the individual plants are not particularly long-lived, lasting perhaps three or four years before fizzing out. The plants have long taproots, and severely resent being transplanted once they outgrow seedling stage. Our original plants were probably Russell hybrids.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
