Pollinators Love Lupine
Sunshine-yellow spikes, so cheerful and beautiful; Lupines also have the added benefit of being quite deer resistant. From the Mini Gallery™ Series; tightly-packed, sweet pea-shaped blossoms in a breathtaking array of colors invite pollinators to their nectar-rich spires. Flowers in this series appear 2 weeks earlier than other Lupines. No staking needed. Great companion plants for heavy-feeding vegetables like cucumber, squash, cabbage and also fruit trees. Did you know that Lupines can improve the fertility of the soils in which they grow? Plants belonging to the Legume family like Lupines are often called nitrogen fixers. All plants need nitrogen for growing and Lupines are able to take nitrogen from the air with the help of special soil bacteria that live within nodules on their roots and convert nitrogen into a form that can be used by nearby plants.

Lupine General Information

Lupine are magnificent in bloom and long-lived. Require lots of moisture during hot summers. Lupines dislike lime. If you are having trouble with them, try a few handfuls of peat in the planting hole. Deadheading to prevent seed formation can help with overwintering. Not a good choice for the humid Gulf states. Lupines are shipped during our spring shipping season only. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Lupine Plant Care

Deadheading can prolong blooming. Cut back approx. 6" in mid-late July, then not again until spring to remove winter kill. May require some staking. Needs winter protection in Northern gardens. A light mulch would be beneficial. Division is difficult due to the long tap root, but side shoots can be removed and replanted in the spring.
