Lupines are another perennial favorite that will generally bloom first year from sowing. A January sowing produces spring saleable plants. Established plants bloom early to mid-summer. Stiff, sturdy 1-4 ft. flower stems are produced on plants with distinctive foliage where the leaves are palm-shaped and normally divided in 5 or more leaflets. The flowers are produced in whorls on 1-4 ft. stems, with pea shaped florets in shades of blue, pink, red, white and yellow.
