Lupine Leaf Curling


Chuey005 added on June 12, 2017 | Answered

I planted two mini lupines a few weeks ago. They have grown n appear to be disease free. They were planted in shade n Sun. However, one thing that perplexes me...when Sun hits the plant the leaves curl. Before n after Sun, the leaves are wide open. Why? First pic no Sun, 2nd in sun

Your plant is likely still getting acclimated to it's new planting spot.

Make sure your watering well, water slowly and deeply to make sure the entire root structure is moist. You can mulch around the plants to aid in moisture retention.

Thank you, I was thinking they were still adjusting. Do you think if I added something to help shade during hot hot summer Sun. A friend suggested adding low cut lattice around them for some shade. Wondering if that will help them get better rooted?
