Thanks, Calculatorbobby and good witch Lilith, I'm in for this and some other goodies on sale. I'll probably be cursing you in my head a week or two from now when I am once again faced with my overzealous gardening shopping results. So easy to order, such great prices, and so much tougher than it even seems it will be when planting time arrives. Maybe I can retrain my dog to dig on command and have the lupines tucked in in not time, but I'm not counting on that. Seriously, though, good find and thanks for sharing.
These are not seeds but what they call starter plants, look at the second image on TulipWorld lupine page. Basically it's where a seed will be after a few years. You can plant these now and will have a full plant this season.
How much depth would these plants require? I'm guessing the 4 'x 4' x 4 inch snap together planters I bought from Home.Depot would not offer enough depth unless stacked one on top of another. Or would a single 4 inch depth suffice?
calculatorbobby said: According to TW site planting depth should be 1/2" down in soil and spacing should be 12-18" apart Thanks for the information, but what I'm trying to determine is if I transplant these starter plants to a container that is six inches deep, would that be deep enough to keep the plants healthy and growing.
I understand now, I don't think they would perform well in something so shallow, 6" probably is not enough room for the roots to develop. Looking at the roots in the TW second image, the plants themselves are almost 6" long! I would suggest at least a 12-16" deep pot.

I ask because I have had zero success with bulbs that had just a small sprout coming out in my yard
Just got an email from them today since I purchased these lupine last week--looks like they have a whole slew of perennials on sale for 75% off ----a lot of things that are under $3.00, guess I may have to indulge a little more today...my husband may not be happy about all the digging he will be doing his May
