Details

Miss. Rumphius followed her grandfather's advice to "do something to leave the world more beautiful" by planting Lupines wherever she went. Although Miss. Rumphius is a children's book character thought up by Barbara Cooney, we can continue her charming seed-bombing legacy by planting these colorful, native flowers. Pixie Delight Dwarf Mix is a shorter, bushier variety than other Lupines, and has an infinite combination of blue, pink, and white blooms on each zig-zaggy stalks. Although some Lupine varieties have a place in Native American diets, others have a level of toxicity that can be trouble, especially for livestock and other animals.
Number of Seeds 75 seeds
Spacing in Row 12 - 14 inches
Planting Depth 1/8 inch
Days to Germination 14 - 20 days
Lupines must be winter sown (tossed into a prepared plot from late January until early March) or scarified by being put in the fridge and then nicked with a file and soaked. After that, fairly easy to grow. Perennial.
Ready seed pods will burst open. When the seed pods begin to yellow and dry, and the seeds inside feel loose, Harvest them and place in a well-ventilated area where the pods can pop and you can gather the seed!
