Product Details

Product Details

The Russell hybrids are legendary. They were developed by George Russell of Yorkshire, who, as a railroad guard at a quiet crossing, worked out their great flowers, now grown all over the world in temperate climates. The flower spikes are 10–12″ long, on stems that can reach 30″ tall. If grown in an exposed area, stems may benefit from staking. The blooms come in all the best Lupine colors, including pink, purple, red, white, and yellow. Plants look best in bold groups. Difficult in areas where summer nights remain extremely hot. Makes an excellent winter annual in the Deep South. Our mix is sold in multiples of 3 in order to help provide a sampling of the full color range.

We love growing Lupines for their spikes of tall, colorful summer flowers. They come in a range of colors including blue, purple, yellow, red, pink, white, and bicolor. The hybrid varieties like this one require lots of moisture, full sun, and protection from hot summer winds. Hybrid Lupines are easy to grow in moderately rich, well-drained, acid soil. Plants are very hardy and perform best in the cool summers of the Pacific Northwest, New England, northern U.S., and northern areas of the West Coast. Because they don’t tolerate summer heat and humidity well, Lupines are best grown as annuals in the deep south (Zones 7-9). Even in ideal climates, Lupines have a short life span, usually lasting between 2-5 years. Once established, Lupines are deer-resistant, and will attract pollinators in late spring and early summer.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

I waited anxiously for these Lupine to arrive. When they did, their stems were bent badly, a couple of the stems and leaves were already dried to a crinkle. Did what I could, but very disappointed in how they were sent. I planted them and will hope for the best.

I am sorry these Lupines were of poor quality when received Louise and I will be contacting you via email regarding compensation.

Wider spacing!

I planted 3 in a bed of mixed perennials in June of last year. One died immediately. I was a little peeved then, but now I'm very grateful! THEY GET HUGE!! They're about 3 feet tall, but with a 3 and a half foot spread! They're currently shading a moonbeam coreopsis and a peach leaf bellflower with their expansive foliage. But, the whirled foliage is quite attractive and each of the two remaining lupine are throwing up about striking 12-15 flower spires. It's kind of a bummer that both of my remaining two lupine are pink-flowered (not sure what the third one would have been), but they still look lovely. And gigantic.

An Early Summer Treat

Lupine grow naturally along hillsides in my area of the country. So when I wanted to naturalize a hillside, I started with six lupine from WFF. My little hillside became populated easily, although my color mixture is not nearly as vibrant as WFF pictures. My colors are mainly blues and pinks with an occasional bicolor. This flower self-seeds easily, even in poorly prepared soil. The length of bloom is short, maybe two weeks. It belongs in a natural setting. I've taken seedlings to my remote cabin, also on a hillside overlooking a small lake. Even with sandy soil, the lupine have grown as tall as 3 feet and are naturalizing on the hill. A big PLUS - the deer don't eat it. And I have such frequent deer visitors that some are named!

Plant in full sun and moisture-retentive but well-drained soil that is on the acid side. Foliage sometimes looks the worse for wear after bloom. We cut plants back to the ground to encourage a crop of fresh leaves. If aphids are a problem, spray with insecticidal soap (available at garden centers).
