This abundantly flowering annual Lupine looks like a giant Texas Bluebonnet. Tall spires of soft lavender under petals meet white top petals with yellow throats and flower over a long period of time. The sweet cherry blossom-like scent fills the air and pollinators love them. To keep this great bouquet addition churning out flowers, pinch early and pick hard.
