Lupinus x russelli 'Band of Nobles'
Jobbing gardener George Russell bred these hybrids in York during the 1920's.
They are known for their vibrant colour. The Band of Nobles Series are robust biennials or short-lived perennials with erect spikes of fragrant flowers in shades of blue, pink, cream, red and yellow, some bicoloured, in early summer.
For maximum flowering plant in a position in full sun with well-drained neutral to slightly acid soil that has reliable moisture during the growing season.
Lupins quickly develop a long tap root which needs a fair degree of water. They resent disturbance so once planted leave them alone. Deadheading will encourage further blooms.
