Lupinus polyphyllus

Lupinus polyphyllus

Who needs those wimpy ‘Russell Hybirds’ Lupines when you can grow the original California native ancestor? Noble spires of blue or purple flowers reach to 4’ tall & appear in Summer above the stand-out large & robust foliage to 3’ across. Native to most places in the Western U.S., grow it in average-rich soil with regular water for best show. Cut flowers, hummers, bees, butterflies & birds galore, plus deer proof too!
