Lupin Question

Hey everyone. Where I see this type of thing on a hybrid tea rose I’d remove the smaller buds to channel energy into the main one for a bigger head. In this case on a lupin should I do the same?

    I wouldn't ... the smaller buds will flower after the main one is over, thus extending the flowering period of the plant. 

    I wouldn't do it for HT roses either, unless growing for show.

    Agree with @Dovefromabove, the buds will flower in sequence.
