Hardy Lupins are a staple perennial for cottage gardens and are becoming increasingly popular for cut flower displays too. With their tall, stately spires of bloom, lupins are a real summer garden classic and certainly have the wow factor. Smothered in pea-like flowers, right to the top of their stems, their palmate, sage green foliage creates the perfect backdrop for the eye-catching blooms making a stunning statement in your garden.
Traditional lupins need a lot of room and can get tall and leggy, but not the Gallery series! Far more compact and robust, they reach just 60cm tall, yet will still fill your garden with incredible flower power. Perfect for growing in pots and great for creating focal features on patios and decking, you don't need a garden to get the most out of these amazing perennials.
Flowering throughout June and July, the perfect blooms of Lupin 'Gallery' open in succession from the bottom of the spire upwards, prolonging the flowering season, and are a magnet to butterflies, bees and other beneficial pollinating insects making your summer garden a haven for wildlife.
Easy to grow and totally winter hardy, Manhattan Lights is also easy to maintain and makes the perfect cottage garden plant – it's perennial so comes back year after year with an ever-increasing amount of blooms and works spectacularly when planted alongside old fashioned English roses and hardy geraniums.
Supplied as 3 x established plants in 9cm pots and ready to plant out, these lupins are easy to grow and care for and will grow to around 60cm x 60cm, flowering in June – July.
