Lupinus 'Cashmere Cream'

Plant details

Lupins are one of the traditional flowers of the early summer border, 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 Lupinus 'Cashmere Cream' are a pale pink and yellow. Flowering continues for six-eight weeks, but if plants are deadheaded as soon as flowers fade, they often produce a few late flowers in early autumn. Lupins are fairly short-lived, especially if grown on limy soil.
