We are delighted to bring you another MILDEW RESISTANT, VIGOROUS & long blooming Lupine that grows so well here in our foggy coastal climate. For years we have so coveted those storybook Lupines seen in photos of East Coast gardens but they just wouldn’t grow here. Now we can rejoice! Big luscious 12” or more erect spikes of rich purple-blue & white bicolor blooms can now be had mid-Spring through Fall. Cut them for bouquets or dead head for continuous bloom. The lush bright green palmate leaves really stand out in the garden too & form a nice dense mound to 2’ tall & 3’ across. Now remember, storybook Lupines are rather piggy & need rich humusy soil. I side-dress with compost once in early Spring & again in Summer for plant happiness & the most blooms. Goes deciduous in Winter but returns reliably each Spring. A great plant for attracting butterflies & bees & deer hate it! Will wilt if it gets too dry.
