I like it much better than normal size lupins. Well done for growing it from seed. 👍👍

Ohhhh, I forgot to tell you, I got some of these to grow & had the odd flower too, but forgot to take a photo before it went over. This one's very nice. I had a bluer/purple one.

@ublaszko they’re much more manageable and also I prefer the colours 😛 think this mix is your kind of colour palette 😁 they’re only annuals too so easy to grow each year

@jeatacake yay! I’m so glad they grew for you 😛 the blue one is my favourite. It’s quite a unique shade isn’t it 😍

I'm going to give it a go next year. It's such a shame but I won't get to see any of the annual flowers I sowed this year because they don't like to be transplanted.

@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom they’re such adorable little ones and the colours are lovely too. Nice to have an annual lupin 💕

@ublaszko oh no, that means all your climbers you sowed won’t get to climb 😢

Thanks Kerry. I like them. Most of all that they flower the same year as they were sown. I'll be keeping some seeds off them for sure 👍

Ooo, I might like to have some of these. The regular size are just a bit big for my gardens at the moment.

There's definitely something about white lupins, apart from being on the long list of plants I've had no success with!😄

@lesliecole49 these would be ideal if you’re looking for a shorter variety, but they’re an annual. Not difficult to grow from seed in spring though and flower for a long period ☺️

@jeatacake you don’t have much luck with lupins? Or just white ones?

3w
comment
jeatacake

Strangely, just white ones for some reason. They either just die, won't germinate from seed or get eaten by slugs or snails while still young plants 😞

@jeatacake that’s so strange 😕 I have thought for a while that white flowering plants don’t seem to be as strong as others though. I may be wrong but they’re the ones that seem to be less successful for me too 🤔

It is odd. 🤔 I can't think of another white flowers I've struggled with off hand, but I've always been cursed as far as white lupins are concerned 😟

@jeatacake hopefully the ones I have to send will be more successful 🙏🏻

@ublaszko these are a lovely variety and the marbled effect is extra nice. You’d like them, they’re a short variety 😉
