West Country™ Towering Inferno Lupine, botanically known as Lupinus polyphyllus, lives up to its tall name. Head-turning displays of color and texture appear in early summer and will light the garden on fire! Densely packed, bicolor, orange to deep salmon-red flowers prolifically bloom on this stately perennial. 

West Country™ Towering Inferno Lupine is a favorite of hummingbirds and butterflies. It has a straight, upright habit and very sturdy stems that reach heights up to 3 feet with a 2-foot spread. Towering Inferno is both deer and rabbit resistant and hardy in Zones 4-9. It's exceptionally beautiful both in the garden and as a cut flower in stunning arrangements.

West Country™ ‘Towering Inferno’ Lupine Care

Find a spot in your garden where West Country™ Towering Inferno Lupine will receive partial to full sun, at least 4-6 hours or more of sunlight per day. Plant this perennial in slightly acidic soil that is well draining. Adding a bit of sand will help with soil texture and drainage. Plant it in an area that is protected from strong winds. 

Deadhead spent flowers to encourage further blooming. If you have rich garden soil, bury the dried seeds after deadheading around the root zone, and new seedlings may appear the following year. Apply a 2” layer of mulch around the plant in spring to help keep roots cool in the early summer and to help retain moisture. Cut back the foliage to a few inches above the soil level after flowering has finished. 

West Country™ ‘Towering Inferno’ Lupine Spacing

Use West Country™ Towering Inferno Lupine as a border plant in a cottage/coastal garden. It makes a stunning focal point specimen, and is exceptionally showy when planted in groups. If planting in groups, space plants 18-24 inches apart on center, staggering rows to allow for its mature width.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
