Lupinus 'My Castle'

Plant details

Lupins are classic summer bedding plants, their flowering period coinciding with the first flush of roses. Their lush, grey-green leaves emerge in April, hiding the last of the fading daffodil foliage. The flowers are tall, upright spikes, densely packed with rows of small pea flowers. 

Lupinus 'My Castle' is a tall-growing lupin, bearing dense spikes of fragrant, red to pink flowers, often with a darker standard petal, in early to midsummer. For best results grow in full sun in moist but well-drained soil, and protect young plants from slugs and snails. Deadhead spent flowers to encourage repeat-blooming. Lupinus 'My Castle' has a bushy, upright habit and therefore doesn't need staking.

these for me are the best cottage garden plant if you mix them with gladioli i think the look fantastic collect the seeds in the summer from them and plant them in the greenhouse and get lots more lupins the leaves are also great too.


When the flowers have gone and the seed pods are left, when is best to remove the seeds, should I open the pods and get seeds...then what? I absolutely LOVE gardening but want to start growing my own and taking cuttings...


Found a useful link that tells you how to sow the seeds from lupins ....


awaiting the info , on this particular flower,

with great interest
