Lupinus albifrons
“Silver Bush Lupine”

Lupinus albifrons “Silver Bush Lupine” Lupinus albifrons “Silver Bush Lupine”

So much bloom with so little water! This “Silver Bush Lupine” is planted in our awesome propagator Anni Jensen’s “zero Summer water” parking strip, where it blooms Spring thru August with FRAGRANT
masses of purple spikes sitting atop knockout shimmering silvery foliage. A very rare California native it likes infertile, well-drained soil. Great in a large container & a host for the endangered Mission Blue Butterfly. When plants are young they may not have built up enough of the alkaloids that gives them a bitter taste & deters deer. Protect young plants until established. To 3-4’ high & wide.
