Wild Lupine Flower
Wild Lupine, also known as sundial Lupine, is a perennial flower native to North America. This flower is the ultimate gift to the pollinators in your garden; immature insects live on the leaves, while adults feed on their nectar. They are also incredibly beautiful and, once established, will grace your garden year after year.
These Lupine seeds come with love from Neda and Nick at Orange Bicycle Guesthouse and Gardens in Tobermory (https://www.orangebicyclebnb.com). I came across their astonishing Lupine patch and knew I had to return for seeds, as the variation in colour and patterns was unlike anything I've seen. Thank you Nick & Neda for your contribution!
***A note on germination: Lupine seeds require nicking the seed coat & soaking to achieve proper germination (the fancy term for this is scarification). Clip the very outer shell of the seed with nail clippers and place in room temperature water for 12-24 hours. Seeds will begin to swell up and are then ready for planting.***
Grown organically with love and tenderness in the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada, in the summer of 2023. Germination tested. Minimum 30 seeds.
