Growing Calendar for Lupin Chandelier - 9cm Potted Perennial x1
Delivery: Early January to Late March
Lupin Chandelier (Band of Nobles Series) is a bright yellow lupin that returns annually on confident, tall stems of illuminating yellow flowers. The flowers partner well with the attractive palm-and-finger-like leaves which hold onto dew and raindrops and sparkle in sunlight.
We recommend that you plant lupin Chandelier in the centre of your borders. They reach around 60cm (24in) high, and look great with neighbouring summer flowers. Grow by hybrid-tea roses in hot yellows and reds or partner with blue-flowering perennials like delphiniums.
Lupin Chandelier adds nitrogen to the soil as it grows. The roots house a bacteria that converts nitrogen into usable nitrates great for lush and healthy green leaves. Consider growing leafy crops like salads near lupins where they will thrive from the added nitrates and give you lots of taasty leaves.
You can grow lupins in containers too. Nasturtiums make great bordering flowers in containers as do lantanas and marigolds and attractive beneficial pollinators like bees and hoverflies.
Consider cutting lupins to add to vases for your windowsills indoors- they partner well the impressive blooms of roses. The yellow complements the purple and blues of delphiniums and you can add the decorative leaves of peonies to add to the vase display.
If you cut back the flowered stems of lupins in late July you may be rewarded with a second flush of flowers every year in late summer to early autumn. A fantastic flower for years of colour and impact.
Perennial plants are the mainstay of the flower garden; many will flower all summer, becoming dormant in autumn to reappear in spring. Perennials tend to be non-fussy plants and are easy to look after - they just need the old stems cutting back in late autumn, which helps to promote new stems and vigorous growth the following spring, getting bigger and better every year!
