Latin Name – Lupinus

The humble Lupin is a hardy perennial. This means it’s tough enough to survive a British winter. And although it will die back during the winter, it regrows the following spring.

When the weather warms up a bit and the daylight hours increase, these new leaves will appear.

Followed by these long spikes of flowers.

And the pollinated flowers then produce seed pods.

There are many different flower colours and combinations available, so if it’s Lupins you like, and variety you want, visit you local Plant Nursery or Garden Centre and see what they have.
