Large-Leaved Lupine Lupinus polyphyllus ssp. pallidipes

Plant Description
Extremely striking perennial plant with large purple-blue flowers and whorled leaves. Attracts large-bodied bumblebees that can access the flowers effectively. Prefers soils that are relatively wet through winter. The status of this species is currently under debate; some question whether it is native to the area and some confuse it with the garden hybrids that were planted all over the island highway. We continue to regard this entity as native because it occurs regularly throughout our Prairie-Oak Ecoregion, extending south into Washington and Oregon and in similar habitats to which it is found in the Victoria Area; wet clay-rich meadow with winter moisture and relatively deep soils. This entity should be carefully planted and not nearby to garden hybrids with which it may hybridize.

Growing From Seed

Growing your own native plants from seed is the most economical way to add natives to your project or home garden. The seeds of native plants have built-in dormancy mechanisms that protect them from germinating before killing frosts or periods of drought.

In cultivation, the successful gardener must become familiar with these conditions to unlock the dormancy mechanism and stimulate germination. We are developing thorough seed germination categories in the Seed Details section above to help you successfully grow the native seed we sell.

Careful and correct planting techniques are critical to the survival of young potted plants from our nursery.
