Lupin-disease or pest

    I've had a few lupins in my border for a couple of years and this year all but one are progressing nicely. I don't know what the problem is but the leaves are turning yellow at the edges and curling up. It is continuing to grow and flowersare forming. I've attached a photo and you can see that the lupin next to the dodgy one is normal. I tried a bug spray early on but it made no difference.
Any help will be appreciated or should I bin it
