@frostweed...I believe there are Lupines native to Texas frostweed. Correct me if i am wrong but they are commonly called Blue Bonnets? Smiling

Thank you Beverly and Josephine,
Delighted you viewed the video it is such a mass of color,..as i mentioned i was so impressed i grew a few though they grow about three foot in width so four of them take up a lot of space which i am running out of.

Oh my goodness! I just found this thread & watched the video Philip. How very, very beautiful! Thank you for sharing that.
