That's true! The wild stuff here doesn't start out in shade, either. I tried to start some cosmos and callendula in the back of the garden along the kennel building, but only a few seeds came up (I think they got drowned out by the rains we were having), so it's very tempting to put the lupine seedlings in that part of the garden. If they all got as pretty as the ones that are blooming now, it would be well worth the three-year-wait for flowers!
