My most favorite Spring Flower is Lupines. Lupines come in a range of colors from red, to pink, to purple and yellow. Lupine heights can vary from shorter varieties like the Gallery series which is 18-24″ and also taller varieties like the Russell Hybrids.

Lupinus x hybrida ‘Gallery Blue’

Lupine “Gallery Blue” is a great perennial that provides you with spring color. Lupine come in a range of colors and sizes, but I prefer the shorter varieties. Lupine Gallery Red and Gallery Blue are both staple plants in my garden, they are the go to plant when referring someone for spring color. The unique star shaped leaves have nice texture and interest  in the garden. The multiple spike flower heads provide a ton of color. If you love your Lupines let them go to seed and sprinkle it around. Lupine like dry, well drained soil. Attracting hummingbirds and butterflies is an great attribute of Lupines.

Lupinus x hybrida ‘Gallery Blue’

lupine purple 1x1I 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.

(Lupine) Lupinus ‘Gallery Blue‘ features beautiful spires of blue flowers which display their intricate beauty in late spring through early summer. 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.
