The ones I planted are not near as strong as the native blue ones in N.W. Ohio.
Russel’s Hybrid Lupines suck. Pretty but not very hardy.

Btw if the pods are ripe store them in paper bags … the seed explodes from the pods …..
and plant them now in a nice peat/compost/sand mix. No deeper than 1/4 to 1/2 an
inch deep.

Btw. I had a Karner’s Blue land on my shoulder a few weeks ago.
