Buy Lupinus 'Chandelier' (Band of Nobles Series) lupin: Graceful bright yellow flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, slightly acid, sandy soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July and sometimes again in September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Cheerful spires of yellow, pea-like flowers, each with a darker standard, appear from June to July above dense clumps of mid-green leaves. This popular cottage garden perennial is perfect for the middle of a sunny border. To encourage a second flush of flowers in September and prevent the plant from looking scruffy, deadhead after the first flowers have faded.

  • 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

This small plant did not survive the onslaught of leaf-eating beetles. I would buy again - but it would need to be an older, larger, tougher plant.

Plants arrived, but slightly smaller than I had anticiapted, but looking full of promise. Sadly the pesky rabbits thought they looked good too and they were munched to the ground in double quick time. You can't win them all!

These lovely plants produce a succession of lily-like flowers each of which lasts for just one day. At first, this seems rather disappointing, but they are such bright, exotic flowers and produced in such profusion that this isn't actually a drawback. In
