Do Lupines grow well in central Georgia?

Lupine's are a tall growing flower, very pretty, looks something like a foxglove to me. You can look the picture up on google.

I was wondering if Lupines should be sown in the winter? Anyone know?

I love lupins as much as my ninja-rabbits. They come by at night and "take care" of my favorites. I keep on planting lupins year after year still hoping the results will be different. Gardeners are optimists, aren't we? :-)

While Lupines are primarily a western US Genus (about 100 species in Calif.), there are at least 2 species native to southern GA, Lady and Sundial Lupine. I haven't tried them, because of lack of suitable growing environment(sun), but after all of my lawn dried up due to this years drought, I now have some additional areas available for plants, assuming I ever receive some rainfall!

Bump! I am wanting to try them. Any new or additional information would be wonderful. The Southern Living Garden book says to treat them as annuals - plant in fall, be grateful for the flowers in spring, and don't expect more than that. Full sun, regular water. Not a lot of info!
