Lupinus 'Gallery Blue'

Medium green palmate foliage with stalks of dense sweet pea-like flowers.

Xerces Society - special value to native bees. The colourful spikes of Lupines are an unforgettable sight in the early summer border. Plants grow best in a deep, rich soil, slightly on the acidic side. This compact selection features tall spires of rich-blue flowers in late spring through early summer. The ?Gallery Series? hybrids were developed from the species Lupinus polyphyllus, a North American native hailing from the Pacific Northwest. As these are biennial or short-lived perennials, allow some plants to set seed for future generations, or trim back hard after flowering is over. Flower spikes are great for cutting. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
