Lupine – Large Leaf


The Large Leaf Lupine has bold, green leaves that support the tall spires of purple flowers.  This native flower is one of the tallest western species of lupine.  It can be found along stream banks, in meadows or other moist locations ranging from southern California to British Columbia.  This variety of lupine can be grown in full sun to partial shade.  Hummingbirds are attracted to the Large Leaf Lupine.

*Most perennials will not bloom the first year they are planted.  They establish a plant the first year and then bloom the second and every year after that.  Annuals will give you color the first year you plant them and then can reseed themselves if they like where they are growing.   This is why perennials tend to be more expensive.  It takes twice as long to get seed off of the plant than an annual when initially planting.

The broadcast rate for seeding is 70 – 87.5 pounds per acre.

The seed drill rate for seeding in rows is 35 pounds per acre.
