Lupins are one of the traditional flowersfor early summer borders, coinciding with the first flush of roses. Plants have a characteristic appearance, with foliage radiating out from the tip of leafstalk like spokes of a wheel, and tall, upright spikes densely packed with rows of small pea flowers, which in Lupin 'Terracotta' are orange-red. Flowering continues for six-eight weeks, but if plants are deadheaded promptly, they'll often produce a few late flowers in early autumn. Lupins are fairly short-lived, especially if grown on limy soil.
