Lupines are perennial flowers with huge, stately blooms. Mid-winter sown lupines might not bloom until their second year in cool climates (Zone 4-7) and in warm climates (Zone 7 & Up) fall planting generally produces blooms in early spring. Mostly Pink and Purple blooms.
The wonderful book "Ms. Rumphius" by Barbara Cooney inspired us to grow lupines and the blooms are a reminder to work to add beauty to the world. 36"- 48" tall plants.
Planting Instructions: Sow 1 seed 1/8" deep every 12" in late fall or early winter in full sun. (May not bloom until year 2 in cooler climates)
