Lupinus littoralis
"Seashore Lupine"

Exceptionally long blooming from late Spring to mid-Fall,this low-growing “Lupine” is a beloved beach bloomer with gorgeous10” blue and white flower spikesbobbing above pretty clumps ofsilvery green foliage.A favorite of bumble bees! Native along the West Coast of North America from Northern California thru British Columbia, it forms a low-growing (18”x24”) mound of showy foliage and is not onlydrought tolerant, salt and sand tolerant,it is also a great neighbor to any nearby plants since it fixes useful nitrogen in the soil around it! Thrives in sandy soils, but can also be grown in most well-draining soils including moderately rich (not super rich) garden soils. Whether you let it spill over a garden wall or feature it in the front of your native beds, grateful pollinators will have a feast! Winter deciduous.
