Details

Launched at Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year in 2014, this easy to grow,  annual lupin produces numerous small spikes over lush green foliage. It’s heady scent can’t be missed as you walk by, loved by bees too!

Called Snow Pixie, its breeder spent a great deal of time ‘fixing’ the colour so that it complemented its attractive pale green, feathery foliage perfectly.

During its development, he realised that not only was Snow Pixie a worthwhile new variety, but also that it had a delightful fragrance, which was particularly noticeable when it was planted en masse.
