PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Lupinus arboreus alba
White Tree Lupin
Currently unavailable
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Tree, Hardy
Flowering period Early summer
Height 6ft/2m +
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Moderately fertile, free-draining
Sowing time/depth Early spring, 0.2in/5mm
This variety of tree lupin bears masses of beautiful white flower spikes in early summer. Although generally short-lived, plants produced from early-spring sowings can attain 2m in their first year, so casualties can be replaced very easily.

NOTE: Externally sourced seeds.

Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow singly in early-spring, in a soil based compost, 5mm deep in a greenhouse or light, warm window. These plants produce long roots, so pot seedlings on frequently to accommodate their growth. Plant out when approximately 30cm tall. As mentioned above, tree lupins are often short-lived, but their life expectancy can generally be extended if they are cut back after flowering, and do ensure that they are positioned on an open site with full sun. With a little skill and some luck with the elements, it is possible to create a standard, tree-like plant.
