My lupin flowered beautifully and uninterruptedly for 4 months (don't even know how many flower stalks there were!). It was grown from cheap local seed, and as you can see the plant was very healthy. Anyway, the blooms were a very faded blue instead of the more intense colour I was expecting. I may have added lime to the soil where it grew, but that must have been a long time ago, and even if I did, the plant would have suffered, wouldn't it? Another lupin flowered close to him, and the colour was also faded (this time it was pink). Spring was not warm here, and it didn't rain much. Does anybody have an idea why the flowers were so faded? Thank you.
