Lupines (Lupinus spp.) are
attractive and spiky, reaching 1 to 4 feet (30-120 cm.) in height and adding
color and texture to the back of a flower bed. Lupine flowers may be annual and
last only for a season, or perennial, returning for a few years in the same
spot in which they were planted. The lupine plant grows from a long taproot and
does not like to be moved. Lupines grow wild in some areas of the United
States, where they are hosts for the larvae of endangered species of
butterflies. Wildflowers of the lupine plant generally come in in hues of blues
and white, although domesticated lupines offer flowers in blues, yellows, pinks
and purples. Tall, spiky racemes produce lupine flowers similar to those of the
sweet pea plant.
Growing Lupines From Seeds
Growing lupines is as simple as planting seeds or cuttings into
a sunny area with well-drained soil. If planting lupine from seed, scratch the
seed surface or soak seeds overnight in lukewarm water to allow the seed coat
to be easily penetrated. Seeds of the lupine plant may also be chilled for a
week in the refrigerator prior to planting. This may also be accomplished by
planting lupine seeds in the fall and letting Mother Nature do the chilling
through the winter. Direct sowing of lupine seeds in autumn is perhaps the easiest
method. Lupines produce seed which will re-produce more flowers the following
year if not removed from the growing lupine. Average soil is best for growing
lupines. Utilize this trait and plant lupines in areas of the landscape that
have not been composted or amended in other ways.
More Lupine Flowers
To encourage blooms, fertilize lupines with a plant
food that is high in phosphorus. Nitrogen rich fertilizer may encourage growth
of the foliage and do little to promote flowering. Deadhead spent blooms for
returning lupine flowers. The lupine plant fixes nitrogen in the soil and is a
great addition to your vegetable garden or any area where nitrogen loving
plants will be grown. A member of the pea family, lupines are beneficial in many
ways. Now that you know how to grow lupines, add this tall, showy bloom to an
area where lupine flowers will be visible and act as background for other
full-sun blooms. A flowering ground cover planted beneath the lupine plant
helps keep roots cool and will benefit from the nitrogen in the soil, creating
a showy display in the landscape.

***Note: It is normal for
tropical seed germination to be sporadic from as little as 30 days to 6 months
or more- so patience is required. Buyers should do their own research for plant
uses if needed.
BE PREPARED – Some Seed can be somewhat difficult to germinate – much
patience and time may be required – please don’t be wondering why the seeds
have not germinated after short periods of time. This is normal. Several months
will be needed for some seed.
Some seeds require some experience in growing. We provide
germination guidance and recommend that you do some research before ordering if
you feel unsure. Growing plants from seed is supposed to be fun. Sometimes it
is successful and sometimes not- this is the way it is with gardening. Because
we are not there to plant them, we cannot be responsible for germination
failure due to improper planting or climate conditions. We will always send you
Seed is a
live product which depends on many important grower skills such as proper
planting time, seed depth, type of soil, watering, light intensity, proper use
of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, soil conditions, and
reasonable weather during the growing period. These factors are totally out of
the sellers control, and germination and growing results are the buyer’s
responsibility and risk.
