This is exciting... this lupin is a hardy annual (rather than a perennial like other lupins)! This means we can sow these and have flowers in the same year! It's a super cool variety (I hate calling things 'cool' but I'll make an exception on this variety!
It is a brilliant border fave and is also a long-lasting cut flower. Sow in Spring for spires of flowers in July.
It also has a beautiful scent with flowers that change from a deep blue through to a golden yellow and white. It's super simple to grow and is really the BEST lupin to grow for the first time.
It grows 90-105cm so best toward to back of borders and planted alongside Larkspur and Hollyhocks.
You can sow in spring for flowers that summer or start them off early in autumn. Plant in full sun and ensure they're well staked (have support so they don't 'flop').
