Comments about American Meadows Arroyo Lupine Seeds:

These sprouted well. I would say better than expected. Last year's did not reseed so well though. I bought these to cover a new area, and they were doing very well and about to bloom when some critter (a rooter) ate almost all of them in one night. aside from that-which of course, cannot be blamed on the seed-I was very pleased.

Cons

  • Required Soft Soil

Best Uses

  • Soil Fertilize

Comments about American Meadows Arroyo Lupine Seeds:

I have a large area in which California Poppies grow every year. I wanted to include lupins in this area as well so I purchased a large amount of seed which I scattered everywhere. They only came up in my prepared vegetable garden beds! They were great there, but most of the seed did not germinate in areas which are fine for poppies.
However, I am glad to have a native lupin which will grow, which is often difficult.

      Comments about American Meadows Arroyo Lupine Seeds:

      I planted Arroyo lupines in 2008. They bloomed the first year and reseeded generously in 2009. I had tried lupines before without success but these did extremely well in the Arizona desert.

      Lot of green, no flowers

      Comments about American Meadows Arroyo Lupine Seeds:

      I spread copious amounts of this seed over a sunny hillside, with plenty of water. Lots of greenery and very little bloom. Very disappointing as the wild lupines are going crazy all over the county and these are...not.

      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).
