Lupinus ‘The Governor’
at Digging Dog

Lupinus  The Governor

May–June.

Lupinus

Lupine or Bluebonnet

Laden with tightset pealike blossoms, Lupine’s sweetly scented, 10 to 12 in. spikes tower above good-looking foliage. Radiating out, like the fingers of a hand, rich green leaves collect glistening beads of water with their silky hairs.

Developed by George Russell, an English plantsman, these stately, June blooming hybrids present one of the longest and most spectacular floral parades at that time. A lover of cool weather and moist, well drained soil, Bluebonnets detest hot, humid conditions, and look their best planted in groups. We cultivated the following Russell hybrids from seed.

Proud banners of marine blue and ivory flowers are prominently displayed above the pleasing palmate foliage.

Size: 3-1/4' high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
