Lupines are the state flower of Texas. They refer to them as ‘Bluebonnets’. These colorful pea-shaped flowers bloom on tall graceful spikes. Blooms in early summer. These plants are also poisonous if eaten.
The Camelot Series of hybrids are dwarf forms of the tall Russell Hybrids. They offer an intense presence in late spring and early summer as cut flowers or in the garden. When blooms fade, deadhead promptly to encourage a possible second flowering in the fall.
These showy flowers add an old-fashion charm to gardens. They’re strong, fast and compact growers.

Centaurea – The unusual brilliant blue flower heads of mountain bluets combine well with lupine’s erect spires of flowers. Both thrive in full sun.
Iris – In sunny cottage gardens, the combination of rainbow-color bearded iris and equally colorful lupine is a winner.
Jupiter’s beard – Jupiter’s beard carries rounded heads of fragrant deep pink to crimson flowers above fleshy foliage in contrast to the erect lupine flowers. Both enjoy similar conditions.
