Lupine is a favorite native flower, often turning entire hillsides purple with its spring and summer color. A bed full of Mini Gallery Pink Bicolor Lupine can turn your landscape pink and white. This unique lupine is small, about 16 inches high and 9 inches around, and blooms in early spring on long color spikes dotted with soft pink and white blooms. Usually, annuals add this kind of mass color to a garden bed or container. But this tough little lupine is a perennial in zones 4 through 8 and just as floriferous.
Mini Gallery Pink Bicolor Lupine foliage is pretty on its own and a nice backdrop to the big flowers. Plant several as a mass planting for a meadow appearance for best success. You also can place a few in containers as the pot's thriller plants. Lupines attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds, so they are a perfect and easy-care addition to a native pollinator garden or container grouping.
Mini Gallery Pink Bicolor Lupine Care
Place Mini Gallery Pink Bicolor Lupine in soil with good drainage and either neutral or acidic in pH. The perennial will flower best in full sun to light afternoon shade. Mulching around the plants will help cool their roots in peak summer heat. Deadheading, or removing flower spikes as each spike is mostly faded, will increase the chance of a second bloom. Cut the stalk where the stem has small growth bulbs. Give lupines about an inch of water per week.
Mini Gallery Pink Bicolor Lupine Spacing
A mass of Mini Gallery Pink Bicolor Lupines on a hill or in a garden bed will bring spring and summer wow to any landscape. Space the plants about 7 to 9 inches apart.
