Fishy, I can understand Treza's desire for lupins. I can grow them....touch wood....and they can look sensational but only for a few weeks.
Went through many phases...annuals,,delphiniums ....grew about 30 of them all staked all supremely tall and blue. Then some died to spoil my delphinium wall and after flowering there was only a boring space for most of the summer....dahlias en bloc, etc etc.
now,,with more awareness, I grow varieties of shapes,,sizes and I hope Treza can think again
