Field of Lupines 001
Some think they can transplant lupines. Several times I have seen people digging them up. They are surprised when they don’t come up the following year. Lupines are biennials which mean they grow small the first year without flowering and the second year they grow taller and bloom. After flowering they spread thousands of seeds and die. If the flowering plants are transplanted, nothing grows the next year. The only way to start lupine is by seed.
