The silver bush lupine (Lupinus albifrons), a perennial herb that grows 3 to 5 feet tall, bears spikes of violet, pea-like flowers and pale, feathery foliage. The silver bush lupine works well in wildflower gardens, and its high pollution tolerance means it flourishes in urban areas. Parts of the plant are toxic to animals and humans. Silver bush lupine grows naturally in the mountains and along the coasts of California and Oregon. The heat-loving lupine thrives in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9 and 10.

Water Requirements

Silver bush lupine is a drought-tolerant plant that grows well in hot, sunny areas with little rain. Give the plant about 1 inch of water per week during the seedling stage. When mature, silver bush lupines seldom need watering, as they receive much of their required water from occasional rainfall. In a prolonged drought, water the plant every four to six weeks.

Sun and Soil Requirements

The silver bush lupine thrives when grown in full sun, but it tolerates some shade. Plant it in the sunniest spot of your garden for robust growth. It also does well when planted beneath trees where it receives dappled sun for part of the day. The plant requires good drainage, and it will grow in sandy, clay or loamy soil. Water that sits on the soil's surface for days indicates poor drainage. If the soil has poor drainage, improve it by mixing in organic matter, such as compost. The silver bush lupine does not have specific pH requirements, so you don't need to adjust your soil's pH.

Fertilizer Requirements

Fertilizers give plants the nutrients they need to develop lush foliage and large, colorful blooms. Many plants benefit from an application of fertilizer. The silver bush lupine, however, is an exception. The plant does not need fertilizer to thrive; in fact, fertilizer can actually kill it. Nodules form on the roots of the lupine, and these nodules have a symbiotic relationship with rhizobia, a bacteria in the soil. The bacteria turns nitrogen in the soil into a form the plant can use. A fertilizer application gives the plant more nitrogen than it needs.

Additional Policies and FAQs

 

 

What is an heirloom or heritage seed?
The terms heirloom and heritage are synonymous. An heirloom plant is an open-pollinated, cultivated plant, or cultivar. Heirloom plants are not used in modern large-scale agricultural, but they were traditionally grown during earlier periods in human history. All heirloom seed are open-pollinated.
What is the difference between open-pollinated and hybrid seeds?
Open-pollinated plants are pollinated by birds, insects, wind, or other natural means. Under these conditions the plant will produce seeds naturally. When these seeds are harvested and re-planted they will reproduce the same plant as the parent. Conversely, a hybrid plant is the result of controlled pollination of inbred parent plants. The plant’s seeds are often sterile and, if they do germinate, they will not reliably produce the same plant as the parent or the yields.
What is the difference between GMO and non-GMO seeds?
A genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genetic substance has been changed using genetic engineering methods. Non-GMO seeds have not been genetically changed, and they are traditionally the same as they were originally created. Non-GMO seeds have all of the nutrition that animal and human bodies need for maximum growth and nutrition. Traditional seeds grow into plants that have been consumed for thousands of years. Non-GMO seeds offer you the peace of mind that the foods you grow and eat are as nature intended.
