One idea someone told me was if you think a Lupin is passed it's best, split it with a spade and replant in Spring. Haven't been brave enough to try it............yet, the large one without much growth might get this treatment, if it doesn't start growing.
Both my other large ones have got quite a bit of growth on them, some of the leaves are a bit damaged, don't think it's anything to worry about.
Will try a root this year Bunny as the purple one is absolutley stunning and would like another. Not grown the dwarf types, are they annual or perennial?
Slugs and snails love the fresh young leaves, I use a one off dose of slug pellets if the small plant is being devoured, gives it time to grow a little. After that I don't use anything.
I love lupins
