The tall, stately spires of lupins are a real summer garden classic, and this Hardy Lupin ‘Manhattan Lights’ will really knock your socks off and will make you the envy of your gardening friends and neighbours!
A real work of art, and standing tall at roughly 1m once fully grown, this amazing Lupin certainly has the wow factor, being smothered in bi-colour, pastel-yellow and vivid purple flowers, right to the top of their stems.
With palmate, sage green foliage creating the perfect backdrop for these eye-catching flowers, their tall, spiky display of blooms really stand out in beds and borders, making a stunning statement in your garden.
Compact growth means that they're also perfect in pots, and great for creating focal features on patios and decking - or why not cut the stems and bring indoors to create beautiful cut flower displays?!
Flowering throughout June and July, the perfect blooms of Lupin ‘Manhattan Lights’ open in succession from the bottom of the spire upwards, prolonging the flowering season, and are a magnet to butterflies, bees and other beneficial pollinating insects making your summer garden a haven for wildlife.
Easy to grow and totally winter hardy, Manhattan Lights is also easy to maintain and makes the perfect cottage garden plant - it's perennial so comes back year after year with an ever-increasing amount of blooms.
Supplied as an established plant in a 11cm pot and ready to plant out, this lupin will grow to around 1m x 1m and works spectacularly when planted alongside old fashioned English roses and hardy geraniums.
