Stinging Lupine

A California native lupine (Lupinus hirsutissimus) with light pink to magenta flowers and small hairs along stems, leaves, and seed pods. As the name indicates, the hairs sting similarly although not intensely as nettle. Plants have minimal water requirements following establishment and are tolerant of poor soil conditions – consider them a great do not touch nitrogen fixer for difficult to grow places. A single plant typically fills 2-3 feet in diameter and reaches 1-3 feet tall.

Plants flower approximately 100 days from seeding. Self-reseeding annual.


Packet: ~75 seeds (2 grams) : 385 Available
