GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Already Potted In 1 Litre Round Pots With Growth, Root And Shoot Development. The Main Picture Is A Stock Photo Only And Shows How The Plant Will Look When The Plant Is Fully Mature. Amount Of Bulbs Per Pot Varies Depending On The Type/Size Of Bulb, But Rest Assured The Pots Are Full. Each Pot Makes A Lovely Display And Can Be Either Left In Pots Or Taken Out And Used To Add Colour To Larger Containers, Or Borders.

Lupines Are A Traditional Cottage Garden Perennial Blooming In The Summer.They Are A Legume And Are Related To Beans, Peas, Crob, Peanuts, Honey Locusts, Vetch And Clover, However All Parts Of The Plant Including The Foliage, Flowers, Seeds And Fruits Are Toxic.

“Russell Hybrids” Are The Results Of Many Years Of Extensive Selection And Hybridization By George Russell Of Yorkshire England.

Their Spectacular Terminal Spike-Like Racemes (Flower Clusters) Of Pea-Shaped Or Butterfly-Like Flowers Can Reach Up To 12 Inches Long. Each Blossom Is Made Of Two Parts, Which Can Be The Same Or Different Colours, Allowing For Great Colour Variations. Flowers Are A Rainbow Of Colours Ranging From White, Pink, Violet, Blue, Red, Rose, Yellow, Peach, Salmon To Many Bi-Colour Combinations.

All Lupines Share The Same Characteristic Leaf Shape. Their Soft Green Leaves Are Divided Into Eight To Sixteen Small, Finger-Like Leaflets That Diverge From A Central Point. They Have Long Fleshy Taproot Similar To Dandelions, With A Few Big Prongs. The Individual Plants Do Not Spread, But As They Get Older And Mature, Their Roots Get Bigger And They Send Up More Flower Stalks. If Spent Flowering Stalks Are Cut Down, Plants May Bloom A Second Time In September.

They Are Very Dramatic When Planted In Bold Drifts In The Border, On Banks And Hillsides, Or Naturalised In Woodlands And Partially Shaded Corners. Plants May Require Staking And Should Be Grown In A Position Sheltered From The Wind. Their Bold Blooms Also Make An Excellent Cut Flower
