LUPINUS

(evergreen)

Plant out from pots when young, either in October or April, in hot, dry, sunny position. The plant makes a tap-root and must be staked, as the root system is not strong enough to anchor the shrub against the wind.

Lupinus arboreus (tree lupin), 6 or 7 ft. in 1 or 2 years, sometimes short-lived. Bears short spikes of fragrant, yellow pea-flowers during the summer.
