Lupines are one of the hummingbird plants

Bloom Time: Late spring or early summer
Zones: 3 – 7
Light: Sun to Part Shade

Lupines are a beautiful flowering perennial that don’t like high heat or humidity (which kind of rules them out in my SC garden, although I used to grow them in Toronto).

The flower spikes are taller than the leaves which makes them perfect for viewing hummingbirds as they flit from one flower to the next.
