Lupinus polyphyllus

Russell Lupine Seeds - The Governor

This award winning member of the "Band of Royals" series of Russell Lupine, The Governor will tower over your garden, reaching up to 4 feet tall with abundant spires of blue and white bi-colored blooms. Flowers open from the bottom, extending the bloom season of this beauty all summer long.

*Seed scarification advised for lupine seeds (Nicking or scaring seeds with hard seed coatings before planting helps the seeds absorb water. After scarification, soak seeds in water overnight before planting. This will jump-start germination and get your garden growing faster.)


Lupine (Lupinus Polyphyllus The Governor) - This unique Governor Blue Lupine features a very appealing color combination. It is bi-color with intense blue and pure white. It establishes easily from Lupine seeds, and it will create a lovely drama for the perennial garden from late spring to early summer. The marine blue and white flowers cover tall spikes which tower above a sea of deep green foliage.

Plant the Governor Lupine in full sun and provide a rich well-drained soil. Lupine plants like their roots to remain cool, so it is a good idea to apply a 3 - 4 inch layer of mulch around the plants to help protect their roots from summer heat especially in hotter climates.
