Buy Lupinus 'Gallery Blue' (Gallery Series) lupin: A sturdy, compact form

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: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Once established, this lupin can produce up to 12 flower spikes on each plant, while its compact habit makes it suitable for both pots and borders. The purple-blue flowers, sometimes with a white standard, blend well with pink and plum shades.

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

  • Harmful if eaten

Great colour, long season

Planted these in February, having had trouble previously with other shop-bought varieties of Lupin in my garden, but with an early start these grew strongly and flowered with aplomb from May to late July. Multiple flower stems with a little deadheading and a good colour. Very popular with bees. The only downside was they did eventually succumb to powdery mildew, but that's more likely a reflection of the hot, dry summer and a lack of moisture-retention in my thin soil (despite my best efforts) than the plant itself.

Love lupins but have usually avoided because of their height and spread. This variety is more suitable for my small garden and they flowered vigorously.

A beautiful blue and not so tall that it gets floppy. Only loses a star because lupins can look quite messy when they finish. Plant something in front of it to cover up its scruffy going-over phase. Never be tempted to cut the messy leaves back hard - it will die on you !

How to use those dreamy flower spires

There's one garden essential that brings a planting scheme to life and it's upright flower spikes that soar heavenwards. They add drama and perspective to all your other planting and, as they open from the bottom upwards, each spire offers a glorious co
