Red Russell Lupine Seeds
In most lupine mixes the red shades are eventually overtaken by blue colors. Now you can add as much red as you'd like.
My Castle. Sometimes called Red Castle or simply Red Russell, this beautiful all red strain of the popular perennial Lupine is a lovely and unique addition to your garden! The genetics of lupines are such that, as a patch crosses and self-sows, over time the blues will become dominant. Now you can revitalize your mass planting with a new burst of red. Or, grown separately where they will not cross, you can maintain a solely red patch of these dense spikes with large flowers.
To soften the hard coating on these seeds, rub them lightly with sandpaper or soak them in 180 degrees F water overnight before sowing. Sow them in early spring, planting 1/2” deep. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination.
