Description

Lupinus elegans Kunth, elegant lupine, grows to a height of 4 feet and is 3 feet wide. Growth is from a central stem which branches frequently. The blooming period lasts for several weeks, commencing about mid-January and continuing to late March. Overall seed production is good, but the amount available for harvest at any one time is rather limited as the seed pods shatter readily upon reaching maturity. The seed produced is small, hard, persists in the soil, and volunteers readily in the autumn months.
