Lupine Yellow Flower Seeds (Lupinus densiflorus) 30+Seeds
Yellow Lupine: The name Lupine comes from the Latin “lupus,” meaning wolf. This refers to the folk belief that this plant took nutrients from the soil. Ironically, this plant actually improves the soil because of its nitrogen fixing abilities. The species name “densiflorus,” literally translated “with dense flowers,” refers to the thickly growing blossoms on each stem.
Yellow Lupine Germination: To soften the hard coating on these seeds, rub them lightly with sandpaper or soak them in 180 degrees F water overnight before sowing. Sow them in early spring, planting 1/2” deep. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination.
