More Details

I love lupins – their great plume flower spikes in early summer with that delicious candy floss-like scent. These are a classic of any cottage garden.

Lupin 'Gallery Blue' is a rare and unusual lupin with pea-like flowers combining an upper standard with lower petals fused into a keel. The keel part of the flower is a smokey blue-purple, which often lightens towards the upper standard – it will sometimes produce petals of pink, or even white.
