Native Lupinus question
I've been landscaping my small front yard with CA natives from Theodore Payne - all planted last winter, watered in to establish them though now I am trying to take the cue from each plant to see how much water they're wanting as they come in - one that seems to be struggling particularly is my silver lupine. It's in full sun during the summer - in winter this area gets a lot of shade (very tricky to figure out plants that can handle this seasonal change.) As you all know, we got (almost) no rain this winter.
It looks like the leaves are sunburned to me - and they're very closed up - not open like pictures I've seen. Is it just going dormant in the heat? Any advice would be great!!
