Sliver Bush Lupine is a 3-5' perennial with flowers 3" blue spikes on a white-silver bush. Many varieties range from S. Ore. to N. Baja. It needs full sun, good drainage, will tolerate some water but best on the dry side. Cold tolerant to -10 deg. when planted. Seems to be deer proof. Very fast to 3' then slowly to 5'. Use as small screen to attract butterflies. Excellent contrast with Eriophyllums, Helianthus, Sphaeralcea or California poppies. We sell a lot of this plant when the mother plant in the nursery is in flower. The plant is very showy and fragrant. It is native in a 8" to 35" rainfall area. (All the Lupines are nitrogen fixers.(Pinyuh))
