The federally endangered Karner blue butterfly relies on Lupinus perennis as a larval host plant. For that reason there is considerable interest in reestablishing colonies of lupine. Trying to transplant an adult plant is a waste of time, but colonies are easy to start from seed, assuming the location is sandy and sunny, with little competition from weeds. The seedlings develop a tap root quickly and benefit from watering while they are getting established.  Seeds should be scarified to enable water to be more easily absorbed through the very hard seed coat.
