I want to plant lupine at our cabin in the Sierras in California. When is the best time to plant seeds? I have read that they bloom in spring. What does the plant look like when not in bloom? Is it dry and ugly? I have a big open area in front of the cabin with no trees - just dirt - and I need curb appeal. Any other ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
