Abstract

An article on lupines, immortalized by Maine author Barbara Cooney in her book, "Miss Rumphius." The self-seeding plant has naturalized in Maine, and its purple, blue, and rose-colored flowers can be seen in fields and along roads after they bloom in early to mid-June. East Coast lupines are restricted to places where the summer does not get too hot, and they succeed in relatively poor soil. Cultivated plants come mostly from a strain called Russell hybrids, bred in England decades ago.
