Lupinus 'The Page' (Band of Nobles Series)
- Position: full sun or partial shade
- Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, slightly acid, sandy soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June to July
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Pea-like flowers appear on magnificent spires in summer above clumps of rich green foliage. Each small flower is a delicious shade of red, and the standard (the upper petal) is often a shade or two darker. A cottage garden staple, these splendid perennials are generally undemanding, but put on a long and spectacular display.
- Garden care: Stake with bamboo canes in spring before the flowers appear and deadhead the faded blooms to encourage a second flush of flowers.
- Harmful if eaten
