Lupinus arboreus blue-flowered

Blue Tree Lupin

A rarer blue version of the popular Yellow Tree Lupin with pretty bi-coloured blue-purple flowers. A fast growing, semi-evergreen mid-sized shrub (rather than a tree) growing to approximately 1.2m tall (4ft) with a similar spread.

Spikes of fragrant blue and mauve pea-like flowers up to 1ft long cover the plant throughout the summer months and are excellent for cutting.

Pale, grey-green palmate foliage is nicely bushy and looks so pretty dappled with dew or after rain.

Grows well in coastal areas and will shelter less wind-tolerant plants on exposed sites.

Ideal for naturalising on a sunny bank and stunning as a specimen shrub or at the back of a mixed border.

Prefers a light, poor soil with reasonable drainage, making it ideal for growing against walls or over builders rubble where few other things would normally survive.

Happy in sun or part shade.
