My Lupine Plants Have Large Seed Pods

jbrown added on July 16, 2012 | Answered

They are unsightly and if I remove them, does this prevent the plants from returning next year? Do they need to reseed from these pods to return? Thanks.

If they are unsightly, go ahead and clip them. You may even get additional flowers when you do. While some are considered annuals and others perennial depending on your locale, you can always save a seedpod or two (store in brown paper bag in cool, dry area) until next season just in case.
