Lupine or Bluebonnet
Laden with tightset pealike blossoms, Lupine’s sweetly scented, 10 to 12 in. spikes tower above good-looking foliage. Radiating out, like the fingers of a hand, rich green leaves collect glistening beads of water with their silky hairs.
Developed by George Russell, an English plantsman, these stately, June blooming hybrids present one of the longest and most spectacular floral parades at that time. A lover of cool weather and moist, well drained soil, Bluebonnets detest hot, humid conditions, and look their best planted in groups. We cultivated the following Russell hybrids from seed.
Cast in alluring pink and pearly white, this mistress presents a leafy foundation heightened by spires, not quite castle-size but still imposing!
