Wow! Fanstastic, substantial, silvery-glossy, chubby pinwheels form a dense, 20” x 36” compact mound so unexpected and shiny in the garden that you’d be perfectly happy even if it never bloomed! The great news is that it blooms profusely for 2 months in Spring bestowing a multitude of sturdy, upright and beautiful 12” violet-purple spikes. Grows from forest to chaparral in its native habitat (Napa, Lake and Mendocino counties) this rare and endangered Lupine is adaptable to moist or dry conditions. Attracts bees and butterflies and deer resistant, too! A super choice for a large container, since it looks so pretty both in and out of bloom. Provide good drainage for best success. Cut back in Fall to keep it looking great.
