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.
