    A robust lupin that produces densely packed spikes of creamy white flowers in mid summer, and often again in early autumn. Lupins are stalwarts of the cottage garden, and are perfect for adding vertical movement to the border. Easy to grow and undemanding, they put on quite a show, with the minimum of fuss, provided they have reliable moisture when actively growing.

  • Garden care: Stake with bamboo canes in spring before the flowers appear and deadhead the faded blooms to encourage a second flush of flowers. Avoid excessive winter wet.

  • Harmful if eaten

    Hello,
    If I plant up the 9cm pot Lupins, can you tell me whether I'll get a good display this year or will I have to wait until next year? Many thanks.

      Hello,

      There is a good chance you will get some flowers in the first year, although the more mature plants will produce more flowers.
