Lacewings & Lupines


Remember my first post on this blog about a leaf curl problem in my lupine?  Couldn't figure out exactly what it was, but you sent me some lacewing larvae to sprinkle around it.  I'm happy to say that solved the problem.  After applying the larvae, my lupine recovered within about 3-4 weeks.  This spring, it has emerged free of problems.  I still am not sure exactly which pest was curling the leaves, but whatever it was, there's no more leaf curl.

For anyone else out there with this problem, try lacewings!

Here's my lupine this spring:
