Buy Lupinus 'Gallery Red' (Gallery Series) lupin: A garden favourite with red 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: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to July and September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This dwarf lupin produces densely packed spires of red, pea-like flowers in June and July above clumps of attractively lobed, mid-green leaves. Perfect towards the front of a sunny cottage garden border, as long as the faded blooms are removed promptly the plant will yield a second flush of flowers in September.

  • Garden care: Deadhead the faded blooms to encourage a second flush of flowers. In autumn cover the crown of the plant to protect against frost damage.

  • Harmful if eaten

Bought for my Dad who loves lupins. He was so pleased with it as it was very healthy and grew to a good size with lovely flowers over quite a long period

This more compact variety of Lupin looked very appealing from the pictures on various websites. However, in reality they turned out to be very much more of a dark pink than anything I would describe as red. I fear I have a soil which encourages this pinkness, however. They were healthy sturdy young plants which grew well - though they are VERY attractive to slugs. Luckily one plant, in particular, seemed to be more tasty to them, leaving the others to grow tall in an almost unchewed manner.
