📸 Velvet Purple Lupines 📸

in #petals3 years ago

Hi Steemians

I love the deep dark but still warm Purple on these Lupines :)
It looks almost like velvet :)
These are easy to grow and very rewarding.
They can grow 1 to 4 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide depending on the selection.
Give them loose soil and a sunny spot.
Lupines can be annual or perennial depending on the sort.
Plants that look great beside them are:
tulips, daffodils, California poppy, Oriental poppy and peonies.
If you look for an easy growing plant, this is the one
and it comes in many colors :)

Very pretty! :) We have wild Blue Lupine growing around here. It is important to the survival of the endangered Karner Blue Butterfly.

Thanks for stopping by @paradigm42 :)
I will google that butterfly that you speak of
and I follow you since you make nice photos too :)
This way we can help each other :)

Thank you! I am following you as well. That is one of the great things about steemit, we can help each other through the appreciation of each others work! :)
