Lupine Golden Yellow Lupinus Densiflorus Aureus is an annual wildflower native to California, and this Lupine carpets whole hillsides along the Pacific coast. Golden Yellow Lupine seeds are very easy to germinate, but it is recommended to soak the seeds in warm water overnight before sowing them. Lupinus Densiflorus Aureus features lush foliage and produces tall spikes of majestic, golden-yellow, sweet-pea like flowers that bloom profusely in summer attracting hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies.
Lupine Golden Yellow is perfect for roadside and hillside planting, sunny borders in seaside landscapes or areas with marine influences, and Yellow Lupine adds a marvelous golden accent to partially shaded areas in warmer, dry-summer climates. Lupinus Densiflorus Aureus seeds can be started indoors or directly outdoors, and the established Lupine grows best in drier soils with high acidity, sand content and good drainage, enjoying cool and moist costal type of climate. Golden Lupine is a wonderful cut flower.
