Wild Lupine - Lupinus perennis
If you ever get to Northern Wisconsin in summer - anywhere near the Big Lake, you will see Lupine as far as the eye can see. I have family ties there and my earliest memories are of those Lupines. It wasn't until I was in this business when I remembered that the flowers from my childhood were Lupine - and Daisies. I had a chance to harvest some seeds last summer and I am thrilled to offer them. The things dreams are made of.
Plant seeds 1/2" deep in spring. Germination aids: Scarification, inoculation, moist stratification for 10 days. Seeds are poisonous. Plants grow a deep taproot, legumes fix nitrogen, and is a host plant for the Elf Moth, (Microtia elva) and the Frosted Elfin Moth, (Callophrys irus). Highly adaptable.
