Wild Lupine Mix

Some of the more refined Lupines can be difficult to grow. Not this wild forbearer. Scatter the seeds around, and you will get a nice presentation. The color will be primarily shades of blue and purple, but occasionally you will get some spots with pink or white - mark them and save seed for more variety in your stand. An interesting planting that should last and expand for years. We tossed some in a roadside ditch and have been amazed at how well they are growing.

quick up for lupines

Just planted these broadcast and raked in as suggested. Many are already up. I've tried growing lupines before and never had any success germinating them, so this is exciting!

Wild Lupine Mix

A beautiful addition to any flower garden. Easy to grow as the description says. I didn't have flowers the first year maybe I planted them a little late. Second year I had lots of flowers.

Lupine Wild Mix

These seeds do exactly as stated. We planted them in flower beds around our property and they come back more prolific each year. They are showstoppers. Easy, no-fuss plants. (We live in Minnesota - Zone 4.)
