Arriving in a lovely combination of soft pink and white bell shaped blossoms that explode on sturdy spikes, the Gallery Mini Pink Bicolor Lupine adds a festive pop of color to any outdoor space. With more blooms that arrive earlier than others in the series and rise above soft, medium green, palm-like, refined foliage, these beauties look wonderful in mass plantings. Lupins attract hummingbirds, butterflies, bees and it is a host plant for the Silvery blue butterfly and other blues. Deer and rabbits avoid it while browsing.

Lupine Plant Care Instructions: Plants do best with consistently moist, well-drained soils. Adding 2-3 inches of mulch will help retain moisture and reduce watering times. Northern gardeners should plant them in full sun, while filtered sunlight or afternoon shade is best in warmer or Southern gardens. The individual spent blooms should be remove from the flowering stalk to keep it producing more flowers. Lupins can be cut back to the ground once the foliage starts yellowing at the end of the season.
