Plant details

Polar Princess' is a pure white lupin for the middle of the early summer border, where it clumps up nicely making a good contrast with the darker-coloured red and blue lupins. After the flowers have faded in early summer, cut right back to encourage a second flush of growth. Plants self-sow, but you can also increase stock by taking cuttings of young shoots in spring; don't try dividing plants because they are deep-rooted, and seed sowing has a high success rate.
