Minarette Lupine | Lupinus
Medium green palmate foliage with stalks of dense sweet pea-like flowers.
Xerces Society - special value to native bees. The colourful spikes of Lupines are an unforgettable sight in the early summer border. Plants grow best in a deep, rich soil, slightly on the acidic side. This compact selection features tall spires of mutli colored flowers in late spring through early summer. The ?Gallery Series? hybrids were developed from the species Lupinus polyphyllus, a North American native hailing from the Pacific Northwest. As these are biennial or short-lived perennials, allow some plants to set seed for future generations, or trim back hard after flowering is over. Flower spikes are great for cutting. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
