Lupinus, commonly known as lupin, lupine, or bluebonnet, is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family Fabaceae. The genus includes over 199 species, with centers of diversity in North and South America. We offer Lupine because it adds color to a garden, it self-sows, and is deer resistant. Blooming in colors white, pink, red, yellow, blue, purple, or bicolor, you can’t go wrong with this ornamental choice. Lupine can be toxic to humans and animals.
The Best Way to Use Lupine
Lupinus is a large genus of flowering plants, comprising hundreds of species. Growing 1-3 feet tall, the foliage of lupine is grey-green with silvery hairs and the colorful flowers resemble pea flowers. The rounded shrub-like habit is perfect for mixed beds, mass planting, or wildflower gardens. Growing in zones 4-8, Lupine typically grows 1-3 feet high and 3-8 feet wide. This flower likes full sun and well draining soil. Great for wildlife like bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.
