Wild Thyme - Blue Tree Lupin - Lupinus Arboreus -Blue Form
A rarer blue version of the more usual yellow Tree Lupin from California and still rarely seen in gardens in the UK, this is easy to grow and sure to become a great talking point in any garden.
An evergreen sub-shrub, with attractive, delicate foliage, that can grow to 2m tall.
Throughout the summer, it is smothered in large, fragrant, bi-coloured blue-mauve flowers borne in elegant spikes. Flowers are loved by bees and butterflies and delicately scented.
Nitrogen’fixing’ so good for soil fertility.
Rather more graceful than herbaceous lupins and much less prone to mildew and aphids.
Short-lived (approx 5-7 years) but 'replacements' can be grown from the pea-like seeds borne in pods after the flowers.
Fully hardy and remains evergreen in mild winters.
Available as an established plant in a large, 2L pot.
Shelf Life: 0 Years
