Item Description
How to Care for Lupines Lupines, with their peppery scent, tall spires of complicated flowers and neat growing habits will appeal to all of your senses. Here's how to take care of these beautiful flowers. Instructions 1 If you want hearty wild lupine, be prepared to do some spade work, as their roots are extremely long. Dig straight down beside the plant, and then dig around it, carefully avoiding the long, thick taproot. For a fully mature plant, you can expect at least a 12-inch taproot. After removing as much of the dirt as you can, reach down as far as you can on the root and pull straight up. Plan to replant as soon as humanly possible in a large hole with good composted soil. Give the transplant a nice soaking with water, but don't expect much from the plant that year. It will be busy making good roots beneath the soil. 2 If it's color variety you want, buy stock lupine plants at a reliable greenhouse. Lupines are available in an array of colors, such as white, pink, red, yellow, lavender, deep purple and bi-colors (white and one color on the same blossom). Plant them in early spring in a place where they will receive at least 6 hours of sunshine daily. Plant them at least 15 inches apart to avoid overcrowding and to provide each root with space to grow. 3 Growing lupines is simple. Give the plants plenty of water through August. Aphids love lupines--the best choice is to try and attract ladybugs; otherwise, spray them with a light solution of water, vinegar and a few drops of dishwashing liquid. After the flowers have faded, cut off the blooms. This is called "deadheading," something just about every plant needs. Tips & Warnings If you decide to start lupine from seeds, be prepared for a fairly large failure rate. To start seeds, nick each seed with a sharp knife to help it germinate and soak the seeds overnight in water before planting them. Keep the soil warm (72 degrees F) to facilitate germination. When the seedlings get their third leaf, move them to a much cooler area that provides bright light. Transplant outdoors or in larger pots when the seedlings are 4 inches tall.
