Plant details

Gallery Red' is one of the popular Gallery Series of lupins. It makes a compact plant with spires of red flowers in early summer, at about the same time as the first flush of roses. A traditional favourite, lupins are a natural choice for cottage garden schemes. Flowering continues for 6-8 weeks, but if plants are deadheaded straightaway, they will often produce a few late flowers in early autumn. Lupins are fairly short-lived, especially if grown on limy soil.
