Single Packet of 300 Seeds

Grow a garden filled with Pixie Delight Lupine, from freshly harvested Lupinus hartwegii nanus flower seeds. Pixie Delight Lupine will produce pale colored blooms in a plethora of colors, including blue, pink, white & violet. Their attractive green foliage will reach a mature height of only 12 to 18 inches tall. The plants form erect stems that often times branch outwards, producing multiple blooms in one plant. The flowers of Pixie Delight Lupine will attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden including bumblebees, honeybees & butterflies as well.

Categorized as an annual flowering plant, Pixie Delight Lupine is grown successfully from seed, in a single season. They grow quickly, bloom profusely through the summer months, later wilting with the cooler temperatures of the Autumn & Winter season. The seeds can be collected and resown at the end of the season, or you can allow them to drop to the bare ground beneath. The process of winterization will prep the hard shelled seeds for growth the following season.

Pixie Delight Lupine goes great with many other Lupine plants, as well as a number of other insect attracting plants. They are often used in flower beds, raised beds, containers, along walkways, fences & driveways and even in a naturalized setting as well. Once fully grown, Pixie Delight Lupine will not require too much maintenance on a daily basis.

Sowing The Seed

You will notice that Lupine seeds have a very hard outer shell. The seeds will need to be prepped for germination by either soaking them in warm water for 24 hours, or scarifying them with sandpaper or a knife. In the end, It may be beneficial to try both methods, to see which works best for you. Start the seeds indoors, in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost, or directly outdoors when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Sow at a shallow depth of 1/8" under topsoil, to allow direct lighting to reach the seeds. This is a crucial step in the germination process. Transplant or direct sow after all danger of frost has passed.

Growing Conditions

These gorgeous, perennial flowering plants will require an area of full sunlight for the majority of the day. Temperatures should be kept around 60F to 70F for optimal growth. Provide a medium that is neutral to poor. Lupine plants thrive in poor, sandy soils because this allows them to produce high amounts of nitrogen. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. The soil can be watered daily until the seeds germinate, later lessening the amount of moisture provided daily.

Germination & Growth

Pixie Delight Lupine seeds will begin to germinate in roughly 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants will grow to a mature height of roughly 12 to 18 inches tall & can be spaced about 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. Pixie Delight Lupine is known to attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden, such as bumblebees, honeybees & butterflies as well. Their mixture of pale colored flowers will bloom all through the summer months, until the Autumn season arrives.
