Lovely Lupines

Lupines are a beautiful perennial that add personality to any landscape! We have just about every color imaginable. They are characterized by tall columns of tightly clustered and vibrant blooms. They bloom in the summer, require deadheading in order to rebloom and make gorgeous cut flowers. Lupines are harmful if eaten and require full sun to part shade. Hummingbirds and butterflies love Lupines while deer tend to be repelled. Look  below to see the varieties we just got in!
