Lupin Seeds

I would love to have a wave of blue and purple lupins (not the ones with bits of white in them, but I cannot find seeds that are only those colours.  Does anyone know of any that are just blue and purple?

    Hollie is never done any cuttings before . I used carol Klein book then went round garden image

    They spread so can nip a small section off by hand I found . Need to be coming up bit further yet , if yours arnt up already , mine are always late here ...everything late here.
  • because of my heavy clay soil I grew them in pots this year(big pots) and stored in shed,they are still green and no slug attack.like the photo of the lupins,such an old fashioned plant of imagined cottage garden style.image

  • Beautifull photo hollie hock, I adore Lupins, I had one in a pot last year and it was huge. but towards the end of the year the slugs & snails got the better of me. I'm hoping that it comes up again this year. (fingers crossed)
