Lupinus, commonly known as lupines, are an attractive and versatile group of flowering plants that come in a variety of colors, including blue, purple, pink, and yellow. They are particularly well-suited for cottage gardens, where they can be used to add height and texture to borders or mixed with other perennials, such as delphiniums, campanulas, or echinaceas. Lupines also make excellent cut flowers, thanks to their tall spikes of densely-packed blooms that appear in late spring to early summer. For best results, plant lupines in full sun to partial shade and in well-drained soil. They are relatively low-maintenance plants, but may require staking in windy areas. With their stunning blooms and ease of care, lupines are a great addition to any garden.
