Buy Lupinus 'Masterpiece' (PBR) lupin: A new purple variety

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: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Stunning purple flowers that are orange flecked appear from early summer. This is a new variety and the fabulous colour looks great planted with blue and pink flowering plants. Great for the middle or back of a garden border, or can be planted up for pots on the patio. Remember to deadhead after flowering and protect against frost-damage by covering the crown of the plant.

  • Garden care: Stake with bamboo canes in spring before the flowers appear and deadhead the faded blooms to encourage a second flush of flowers. Protect young plants from slug and snail attack.

  • Harmful if eaten

Beautiful lupin.


It is a bit early to say more about this lupin; I am waiting to see if it has survived this cold winter (even in the South where we live).




Lupinus Masterpiece


I love this Lupin but it has never come back. Have to use as an annual which is rather costly.




Lupin masterpiece


This Lupin is very attractive, goes well with yellow Verbascum, pink roses, etc. It is a very structural plant. To combat slugs, mine has not even had a bite, apply whatever you use as soon as the young leafs emerge. We use wool pellets and a dust of pellets, just in case.




Slugs love them.


This Lupinus has gorgeous royal red "Mauve" flowers. If it has chance to flower.! Slugs love it. So the entire plant above ground is demolished in a very short time. Leaving no leaves or flower stalks. Beautiful flowers, but this year I saw none at all, as it never got chance to flower. Mulch around the base, and going out in the dark at night to collect and kill the slugs still does not stop them.

I am interested in buying a few Lupin plants for my south facing walled border but have read from the RHS that Lupins can be biennial. Is this correct? So they don't flower every year? If I bought 9cm pots would it likely to flower this year? Thank you. PS: I understand the Gallery Lupins are more compact than the Border series so would need to be placed more to the front than the middle/back of a border?


Hello, Lupins tend to be perennial, but they can sometimes be a little short-lived. We can never guarantee that a plant will flower in a particular year, however you may well get a flower on a 9cm lupin if it is planted out early enough.


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
