Description

I’ve always loved a lupin — the annual even more so than the perennial forms because these flower all summer and have perfume. Keep live or dead-heading ‘White Javelin’ and you’ll have fragrant plumes, for inside and out, all summer.

Care Tips

Cut back faded flower spikes regularly or pick for the vase.
