A member of the pea family (Fabaceae), lupine (also spelled "lupin") were originally cultivated as a food crop, and still hold stature throughout the world for their lupin beans.
What makes them particularly special, however, is their majestic, otherworldly beauty. Standing in erect spires which dazzle shades of pink and purple, with blooms resembling that of sweet pea and stately lime-green foliage, they are sure to inspire awe.
Their beauty is fleeting, they should only last about 5-7 days with proper care. Trim their stems upon delivery, and periodically thereafter, while changing their water and cleaning their vase daily. Keep away from direct sunlight.
Grown both outdoors and indoors, David Repetto's seasonal blooms are grown with the skill and care of a third generation farmer who loves what he does. His business provides 20-25 employees with year-round floricultural work. In an industry that's moved almost exclusively towards Southern Hemisphere imports, often in countries where labor standards and controls for use of toxic chemicals aren't nearly as regulated as they are in the United States, especially in California. We're proud to work with local flower growers to maintain and grow this region's rich history in floriculture.Read more
