Buy Lupinus 'Noble Maiden' (Band of Nobles Series) lupin: Elegant spires of creamy white 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

    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

Small but strong

Smallish apparently slightly weak plants on arrival but strong root system so took quickly. Didn't flower strongly in the first year (probably bought too late) but already showing good growth in year 2.

Happy with Crocus ,bought few times from them and always de delivery was fast and prompt. Lupinus it's a beautiful plant that's stand up in any. garden. I had them in large planter boxes in a sheltered city terrace,low maintenance,healthy lush foliage. The only down side it's that the flowers that did grow they where small and not so many flowers.

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.

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
