Plant Highlights

This easy to grow annual adds great color to your garden, producing tall blue purple flower spikes in spring that attract all types of wildlife to your garden.Butterflies love this plant, bees pollinate busily during spring, and birds will delight in the seed pods that are produced in the summer. Hopefully they will leave a few seeds to re-sprout next season!Arroyo Lupine tolerates heavy soil and its deep roots help stabilize slopes, as well as fixing nitrogen in the soil for the benefit of other plants.The showy purple flowers work particularly well when companion planted with California Poppy. Plant in flower gardens, on slopes, anywhere you want a splash of dramatic color.
