RED LUPIN Lupinus
A rare color for lupin! Stunning large red flowers on strong stems! These plants will bloom the first year when started early, and attract hummingbirds and butterflies!
Type: Hardy perennial
Hardiness zones: 4-8
Location: Sun or part shade
Note: Ornamental use only. Many plants have poisonous parts, these included. These seeds and/or plants are poisonous.
Germination: Scarify the seeds between two layers of sand paper, and plant as soon as they are received. Rake the ground, and then scatter the seeds on the raked ground. Lightly rake the seeds in, so that they are just covered by the soil, being careful that they are not too deep. Water the area, and keep it continually moist until plants begin to grow. The seeds may begin to germinate in the fall, or can sometimes wait until spring after a cold period. Once they are established, the plants are somewhat drought tolerant.
