Thermopsis villosa (Carolina Lupine) [25 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because they can require a good bit of patience. One approach is to sow outdoors (about 1/4″ deep, in pots or a holding bed) in fall or winter, so the seeds can germinate when conditions are right in spring. Sowing in warm conditions in spring or summer can also work, especially if you pour hot water over the seeds and let them soak for a day or two before sowing.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.
