Product Information


Russell Hybrids


Before the 1930s Lupins were nothing special, but the introduction of the Russell Hybrids changed all that and they are now amongst the most popular of all perennials.


Tall graceful spikes of dense, lightly scented pea-like flowers in various shades of red, blue, yellow, rose, white and many combinations of bi-colour burst into bloom in June and July.


Very striking, these tall spires of colour will often reach a height of 3-4 ft. and are simply magnificent at the back of a border.


 A second crop of blooms in September is also possible if the first flush is removed after the fade.


Accommodating plants, they are quick-growing, prefers full sun but are tolerant of light shade and of town conditions but they can sometimes be short lived.


This cottage garden favourite prefers cool growing conditions and a well-drained slightly acidic soil.


Add peat (not compost) to the site before planting and cover the crowns in winter.

Supplied as large plug plants 3cm x 3cm and are best grown on in 9 or 10cm pots for a short time before transplanting to their growing positions.

Pack 5 Plants Mixed Colours

If ordering a number of different items please email us at  before paying and we will send an Invoice by return.

We ask all our buyers to remember plants are living items and their appearance changes with the seasons.  Please don’t panic if the plant you receive looks different to the image on the website. This is quite normal and not a matter for any worry or concern, it is likely to be in perfect condition for the time of year and just enjoying a well-earned rest before bursting into action for the new season. Particularly in autumn and winter many shrubs will lose their leaves and look rather bare, gaunt and stick-like and from August onwards many perennial plants may not even be showing above the soil.

We want you to be happy with your purchase and all our items are checked and inspected visually before packing. In the unlikely event of a problem please advise us at within 48hrs of delivery. Due to the nature of the goods we cannot accept any responsibility for their failure after planting as pests, disease, poor horticultural practice, extremes of weather and many other factors outside our control all take their toll.
