Blue Lupine is a GREAT cool season legume. There are different varieties and you need to make sure you get the forage variety. Any will work but the forage variety that blooms purple is the best. This plant can provide 13 - 18 % protein with a fairly good digestibility rating.

it is high on their list, but some varieties are not palatable for deer.
lot of turkey mixes have it in them.

see this post (what winter mixes do you use?
LittleBigDoe12) just a few spaces below this one, he's planted them

Like hunter 58 said, some arent palatable to deer but the sweet blue lupine variets is like planting iorn clay peas in winter as far as attractivness goes. but make sure to plant with something like oats or wheat as a cover crop to protect frome early over grazing.

reccomended rate is 50 lbs sweet blue lupine, get it at cooperseed, and 50 lbs of naked oats per acre. good land builder and cover crop.

Seems expensive for a food plot but sure is a good looking flower for a garden or bed:

Free shipping from Hancock, bigger sizes if you wish.

I tried 10 lbs of it in a sunny creek bottom plot that stays moist. It's mixed with peas and oats. I am very interested to see how it does.

If the deer on your place are like the deer on my place they won't let it get much higher than this.

When I planted it a few years ago the deer destroyed it in no time. Seems to have the same downfall of planting soybeans,if the plot is not big enough it will take an electric fence to keep them at nay until it gets to browsing point
