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).

Plant Information
24-36" tall x 12-18" wide. With long, sturdy stems, Sunrise Lupine (Lupinus hartwegii) is excellent for cutting. The unique tri-color flowers of blue, gold, and white make lovely single-species bouquets and add delicate texture to mixed arrangements. Harvest in the morning when two to three basal flowers have completely opened. In the garden, deadhead plants regularly to prolong flowering time. Graceful lobed foliage adds delicate texture to plantings and bouquets. Plant Sunrise Lupine along walkways and patios where you can enjoy the sweet fragrance, or grow clumps in cottage gardens and wildlife plantings. Grow lupine in full sun and soils that are well-draining; plants do not tolerate water-logged conditions. Lupines develop deep tap roots, do not attempt to move once established. Easy to grow and quite heat tolerant. Sometimes called Hartweg’s Bluebonnet for their resemblance to the Texas wildflower.
