Lupine (Lupinus Polyphyllus Russell Mix) - For a reliable, colorful performance, start Lupine seeds and enjoy! For years, gardeners have been growing Russell Lupine for a great source of vibrant late-spring to early summer color. The Lupine plants are vigorous with a spread of 12 - 16 inches wide, creating a bushy mat of bright green foliage beneath the bloom spikes. The Lupinus Russell Mix includes shades of reds, pinks, blues, yellows, and whites in both solids and bi-colors. Lupine flowers will attract attention from butterflies, hummingbirds and your neighbors! Lupine plants prefer cooler climates. Where weather is hotter, provide some afternoon shade. Russell Lupine care is simply deadheading the faded flower spikes. Lupine flowers will self-sow if not trimmed back.
