Lupines, Phippsburg, Maine Lupines are not native to Maine. They were introduced by the Europeans. They have so successfully naturalized that most people think of them as native. For a list of protected and endangered wildflowers in Maine see http://plants.usda.gov/java/threat Wildflowers should be left undisturbed where they are found. To uproot and attempt to transplant them puts the species at risk. Wildflowers are dependent on very specific soil, water and light requirements which a home gardener can rarely reproduce.
