Lupine 'Noble Maiden' - a splendid eye-catcher for your garden
Lupinus polyphyllus 'Noble Maiden' is an attractive nectar or pollen plant with a magnificent floral display that bees, bumblebees, butterflies and other insects will love. The perennial lupine with its dense white flowers is therefore a valuable plant for the ecosystem, because it counteracts insect mortality and ensures biodiversity. Lupine planting time is all year round, but of course it is clever to get it into the ground before flowering time in May so that you can enjoy the flowering perennial in the same year. The foliage of a multiflorous lupine consists of stalked and fingered foliage leaves that are very dense and also beautiful to look at, so that lupinus remains an ornament in the bed and border even after the flowering season.
A hardy, versatile and perennial plant
The lupine is a genus in its own right, belonging to the lupine family and the butterfly family. The perennial, easy-care and hardy plant reaches a maximum height of one metre. The lupine is not particularly demanding and prefers normal or slightly acidic soil. Lupins are an ornament in a flowery, rustic front garden, but also fit perfectly into a modern garden ambience as a flowery accent in front of a wall, in a bed or at the edge of a lawn. Lupins also get along well with many other plants. Even smaller cushions or perennials fit in with them, especially if the leaf size differs from the lupine's flower colour. Lupinus makes a great team with the violet-blue blue rue or with the big starflower, which is also white and flowers at about the same time. The perennial lupine with its large and erect flower clusters forms bean-like pods after the flowering season, which contain several seeds.
The perennial lupine is a very popular plant.
Sweet flowers in gardens and fields
Lupines originally come from the north of America, where they bloom in mountain meadows not far from the Pacific coast. Their name is derived from the Latin word lupus, which means wolf. However, lupins have been cultivated as attractive garden plants. The lupine can be planted very well on small slopes, on driveways or on berms in the garden, because it helps to consolidate the soil in sloping ground. You can buy this particularly beautiful lupine here. For a rich and beautiful planting in the bed with Lupinus Noble Maiden, we recommend about three to five plants per square metre of area.
