Lupinus x 'Russell Hybrids'

Lupine

Few flowers rival their fanciful color selection, sweet fragrance and elegance in flower borders and wild gardens. Droplets of water on the palmlike leaves look like clear beads on green velvet. The Russell Hybrids are best known. Shrubby types include the yellow-flowered Lupinus arboreus. Prefer cool temperatures. Buy in cell packs in fall or from seeds which require soaking in warm water overnight. Remove spent flower stalks. Protect from snails. Replace hybrid Lupines yearly since they are not long-lived.
