    Colourful cottage garden perennials, the lupins in the Band of Nobles Series produce densely packed, sturdy spikes of pepper-scented flowers from early- to midsummer. Attractive additions to the border, they will also make long-lasting cut flowers. Their distinctive foliage is attractively divided into leaflets that radiate out from a central point and each slender leaflet is covered with fine, silky hairs that will hold beads of water after heavy showers. The species originate from a wide range of sites where they thrive in dry, stony and infertile soils. In the garden they are quite undemanding, but prefer a spot in full sun with well-drained, neutral to slightly acidic soil that has reliable moisture during the growing season.

    Each collection contains 5 plug plants, one each of the following.

  • Lupinus 'Chandelier' (Band of Nobles Series)Perfectly suited to herbaceous borders, the yellow flowers of this stately perennial, usually have a darker standard and appear on tall stems, providing vertical interest. Grows to 1.2m.

  • Lupinus 'Noble Maiden' (Band of Nobles Series)The upright flower spike creates a spectacular column of colour when the creamy white flowers open. The fresh green foliage provides an excellent contrast and maintains a good shape through summer. Grows to 1.2m.

  • Lupinus 'The Chatelaine' (Band of Nobles Series) Creamy white standards and a rich pink bell make this lupin very easy to mix with most shades including purples, blues and softer pinks. Alternatively, plant in bold swathes throughout the border. Grows to 1.2m.

  • Lupinus 'The Governor' (Band of Nobles Series)Blue, pea-like flowers with white standards that are sometimes streaked with purple, open from the base of the flower spike over several weeks creating an elegant effect. Grows to 1.2cm.

  • Lupinus 'The Page' (Band of Nobles Series)Bright carmine-red flowers appear on upright stems above the clumps of handsomely divided foliage. Perfect for hot-themed borders with rich oranges and yellows. Grows to 1.2m.
