Everybody loves lupines. And most lupine species are American wildflowers. From coast to coast they are loved...the famous Pacific coast lupines, the Texas Bluebonnet, and the widespread Wild Blue Lupine of the eastern US.

But when it comes to hybrids, there is really only one group--the world-famous Russell Lupines. They were created by crossing several lupine species, most notably blue L. polyphyllus, a native of the Pacific Northwest. By careful hybridization and years of work, a man named George Russell in England perfected the multicolored strains in 1937, and they've been the standards ever since.

The Gallery Hybrids are considered a dwarf form, since many lupines are very tall plants. Gallery Hybrids grow to only about 18 in an endless array of colors and bi-colors.

Growing Lupines These prized plants are not hard to grow, and in fact, many of the wild species are permanent features in wildflower meadows. (See our Individual Species List for seeds of several native species including Texas Bluebonnet.)

The Russell Hybrids are a bit more fussy. They are best where soils are rich and conditions are cool. In zones 4 and 5 they are fine, but considered a short-lived perennial, even in New England. From Zone 6 south, they grow beautifully, but are hard to preserve and should be planted as annuals.

One of my favorite perennial author/experts, Alan Armitage, says, Flowers more perfect than those of the lupine hybrids are difficult to imagine.

Passion for lupines

By 

from Baltimore

Comments about American Meadows Lupine Gallery Pink:

Have always craved lupines since seeing them grow wildly in Maine and Germany. But they just didn't take to the mid-Atlantic zone. Pretty much tapped out by July, never bloomed and I don't expect them to make it back next year.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
