Lupinus chamissonis


Lupinus chamissonis (Lupinus chamissonis)

Needs a warm sheltered position, and flowers in September, but I love the leaves.

They are lovely, what are the flowers like? Hello Sticki:-)
On my front garden I have planted some Geranium Orion and my neighbour commented on the attractive feathery leaves ..... I hadn't noticed:-)

Hello BA!

Apparently, they're blue and like tiny lupins. The whole plant is like a hummock in shape, not upright.

I just googled it, don't think it would like my garden. Apparently it's endemic to California, grows the length and breadth of the coastline there. Also known as bush lupin and silver dune lupin. Is yours a hybrid, T&M have seeds of one called Silver Fleece? How do I know? It's on the ad on the right of this page:-) Not one for the Midlands lol, I'll have to make do with my arboreus:-)

How lovely! my arboreus was chewed at the root and died last year. I was sad. I might try again some time, but I fear it may have had weevils in it when it arrived. :(

Bloomin' things. Grrrr...

I've planted this at the base of the S-facing wall, with my fingers crossed. I'd love to keep it...

I should give it a bucket of sand:-)

...and a bucket and spade?;)

You two! A comedy double-act. LOL.

I don't think arboreus' live long anyway Karen, yours just was a little quicker than most. What colour was it? mine's a lovely blue, but it is getting a little straggly now :-)
We aim to please Barbara:-) I'm not going to Malvern tomorrow, the weather forecast is dire:-(

I'm not, either. Boo-hoo. I can't drive all that way and OH isn't keen on Garden Shows.

I looked at this Lupinus yesterday after the rain and it was magical! :-))

I bet, they really are beautiful leaves:-) Did you see Malvern last night on Gardeners World? There didn't seem to be many people there and, for me, nothing really exciting on the show although I did enjoy the primula sieboldii specialist. I like hearing from real expert enthusiasts and the plants are really pretty. I've been intending to buy some for years and never got round to it. I will this year:-)

11 May, 2013

 

No, I didn't. I might watch it on iplayer tomorrow. Did you see my new P. sieboldii? :-)))

11 May, 2013

 

Flippin' eck ....I might have known >:-[
I'll have a look now, but I'm sure I won't like it:-))

11 May, 2013

 

What an attractive plant......not seen it before, good luck with it B....

11 May, 2013

 

Thanks! :-))
