Thermopsis caroliniana, Bush Pea
The tall spikes of Southern Lupine’s bright yellow flowers are a beautiful sight in spring. Although native to the mountains of North Carolina and Georgia, these clump-forming plants perform beautifully in the Piedmont and coastal plain, where true Lupines don’t grow well because of the heat. Cut the foliage back about a month after flowering. Zone 3b-10a, Sun to part sun, Native, host for butterfly larvae, needs good drainage and moist soil. Height 2-5 ft and width 2-3ft. Flowers from July to September.
