Lupins (lupines) (genus Lupinus) are wild flowers found throughout Atlantic Canada that bloom in late June and early July. While not native to Nova Scotia, they are a common sight along highways and the countryside of Nova Scotia.

The Nova Scotia Lupin Society is a non-profit organization founded in 2018 in an effort to spread appreciation of the lupin and to lobby the Government of Nova Scotia to recognize the lupin as the official weed of Nova Scotia (as Nova Scotia already has an official flower, the mayflower).

Our main slogan is Make Lupins the Official Weed of Nova Scotia. We will continue to use that slogan as our rallying cry until we achieve that goal.

The purpose of this blog is it keep the public informed of developments of the Nova Scotia Lupin Society, progress in our goal make lupins the official weed of Nova Scotia, and information/media related to lupins in Nova Scotia.

We invite gardeners and those who enjoy nature to spread the word about lupins and to grow lupins in their gardens or spread their seeds in the Nova Scotian countryside to make the world a more beautiful place.

The Nova Scotia Lupin Society is active on many social media platforms including:
