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.

Common Names: lupin, lupinus

Companion Planting: Geranium, Roses, Salvia

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.
