    Description

Lupinus perennis - Sundial Lupin

This is a listing for a pack of 50 seeds of this perennial member of the lupin family.

Widespread native from the Eastern USA and Canada, this Lupin grows to around 60 cm tall. It is becoming rare in habitat, as the locations where it formerly grew are being developed to the point where they cannot sustain this species.  This should not be a problem in cultivation as the seeds can be encouraged to germinate well by following a simple set of instructions.  The flowers (possible in the first year from an early sowing) are blue with a purple flush, produced in the summer over an extended period.  These are visited by bees and where pollination occurs, seed will be set and, if left on the plant, the explosive dispersal mechanism may spread the seed up to 8 metres from the parent plant.

This is an ideal plant for borders, mass plantings (both formal and informal) or for cottage garden settings.

It is hardy in zones 3 - 9, perhaps lower if the crowns are mulched well in the autumn.  Where happy it will self seed and is ideal for a wildlife or cottage garden setting.


Very easy from seed, full growing instructions can be downloaded from my website, details of which are on my 'Me' page
