Lupines from wildflower seeds

Zone 98524 | tollharbor added on November 17, 2016 | Answered

I recently (two weeks ago) planted lupine seeds purchased in Alaska and another packet in Alberta. The directions were to plant in the fall for spring sprouting. I just noticed several are already sprouting. Do I need to protect them through the winter with a covering of leaves or other mulch?

    Lupines are perennial, so yes, by protecting the young plants with mulch, you will probably help their survival and allow them to come back in the spring.
