Product Description

Texas Blue Bonnet Seeds -Lupinus texensis

Commonly known as Buffalo Clover back in the day, this beautiful and tenacious little blue and white bloom has been the Official Texas State Flower, and a symbol of the region, for over a hundred years!

Low growing but prolific blooming, Texas Bluebonnet Lupine requires some patience, but little maintenance, once established. The same toughness and tenacity that makes this little Lupine the perfect representation of the Lone Star state also makes it slow to germinate and bloom--but once it does you will NOT be disappointed! We recommend scarifying the seeds to assist in the germination.

    How to Plant Texas Bluebonnet Lupine

    When to Plant Lupine Seeds

    Direct sow in early Spring, as soon as the soil is able to be worked. You can also start Lupine seeds indoors, 4-8 weeks before the final frost of the Spring. In temperate climates, Lupine seeds can also be sown in the Fall, after the first killing frost.

    Where to Plant Lupine Seeds

    Choose a space with Full Sun conditions, or some light shade. Lupines do best in moist, well-draining, somewhat sandy and well-worked soil.

    How to Plant Lupine Seeds

    Soak the seeds overnight in lukewarm water, or you can use sandpaper to rough up the exterior coating of the seed. This will help make it easier for your seeds to germinate and give you a stronger success rate. Direct sow your seeds onto the surface of the sil and compress, but do not cover, as Lupines need sunlight to germinate. Sprouts will appear in about 10-15 days.

    How to Care for Lupine

    Deadhead spent blooms to encourage additional flowering through the season. Taller varieties of Lupine may need staking as well. Don't cut down dead spikes in the Spring/summer, and instead wait until the fall. Likewise, seed pods can be harvested and saved for future plantings. For perennial Lupine, mulching in the winter can be beneficial for the roots. As Spring approaches, the mulching can be removed.
