I am so excited!!! My Favorite Spring flowers are now blooming. I LOVE Lupines. The tall spikes that are sent up add some much needed color to the spring gardens. I have shades of blue and shades of red all over my gardens. Lupine do have a tendency to seed so if you love this plant as much as I do, I let them go everywhere. But if you are into a neat tidy garden I recommend cutting the flowers off once they are spent.

This classic American perennial is wonderful for cut flower arrangements and attracts hummingbirds and butterflies! ‘Gallery Blue‘ thrives in rich organic soil with good drainage.
