Description

Blue/Purple Perennial Lupine Flower Seeds. Perennial Lupine is native to the eastern side of North America, and can be found between Canada and Florida. It requires full sun, up to only partial shade and well-drained soil. Lupine needs neutral soil with pH levels that are just above average. Because this lupine is a perennial it may take a little bit more time to establish itself.

Perennial Lupine has been found on the sand dunes along the coasts of the Arctic Ocean, so planting it in sandy soil may help hasten its growth. It is also often found in wild Oak Savannas. Its seeds are known to be poisonous when consumed by humans, sheep and cattle. Slugs are its primary predator and can pose a serious threat to this flower. Perennial Lupine can be started indoors in a sand and peat moss mixture, and although not necessary, soaking seeds in warm water 12-24 hours before planting will help soften the outer seed shell and aid in germination. The ‘Russell Lupine Hybrid Mix’ uses this plant as one of the main constituents in creating its electrifying combination of powerfully colorful flowers.

Place the seeds in a resealable plastic bag with a couple of moist paper towels when outside temperatures stay above 55 degrees Fahrenheit at night. Seal the bag and place the seeds in the refrigerator for seven days. Lupine seeds seem to germinate better after cold treatment.

Scratch through the coating with a nail file on one side of the seed and place in warm water to soak for three hours. Check the seeds in the water. The lupine seeds that sink to the bottom are ready to plant. Fish out the floating seeds and scratch them again. Soak the floaters in warm water again until they sink.

Dig the soil to a depth of 12 to 20 inches with a shovel in an area with full sun or light shade. Lupines grow best in dry sandy or gravelly soil but do not survive constantly damp and heavy soil. Break the soil up with the edge of the shovel and rake smooth. The deep soil supports the long taproot that lupine flowers develop which anchors the long flower spike and lets the plant survive drought conditions.

Lay the seeds on top of the soil, spacing the seeds 12 inches apart. Cover the seeds with 1/8 inch of soil and sprinkle water over the planting area. Keep the soil moist throughout the germination process. It takes 15 to 75 days for lupine sprouts to appear when the soil is 55 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
