Description

One of the new and improved breeds of lupin with good disease resistance, a vigorous habit and tall, strong flower spikes which shouldn’t need staking. ‘Gladiator’ has a striking colour combination of peachy-orange and yellow.

Care Tips

Pick the flower spikes to encourage the development of laterals and a longer flowering season. Watch out for aphids between April and September, rub them off by hand or with a blast of water, badly infested flower spikes can be removed.
