Vivid blue flower spikes top the tall stems of Arroyo Lupine, which is considered one of the easiest Lupines to grow. A great candidate for a sunny spot in the cottage garden. Hardy enough to grow well in higher elevations where it will look beautiful in a border with the lavender and white Mountain Phlox (Lianthus grandiflorus). Works well in a narrow bed too, near a walkway or along a fence. For a striking, erosion-control mix on a slope, punctuate with white Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) and the bright orange California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica).
Available in single packets and as bulk wildflower seeds.
