Bluer Lupine (Blue BlueBonnet)

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 rich-blue flowers in late spring through early summer


More About Lupinus 'Blue'

  • Bluebonnets detest hot, humid conditions

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.

We do NOT SHIP plants. ALL Sales are in person at our garden center.
