Lupinus arboreus alba

Lupinus arboreus alba is the white form of the tree lupin – a sub shrubby form and one of the original parent plants to the well known border lupins. Far removed from the somewhat stiffly upright fat flower spikes of border lupins, this plant has a wonderful open branching habit and is altogether more elegant. It deserves to be more widely grown as it is quite the showstopper for a sunny position in the border or gravel garden. The foliage is beautiful too – fine and delicate and a shimmering silvery green. The pure white flower spikes born in June and are beautifully scented. Ultimate height 2m.
