About Lupin 'Noble Maiden'
Lupins (Lupinus polyphyllus) were brought over from North America and introduced into Britain in 1826. The original cottage garden perennial had plain blue flower spikes with occasional white blooms. In 1937, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) conferred its highest honour on George Russell for his work in developing a strain of Lupins that became an instant sensation. Russell achieved this feat through a meticulous selection of seedlings that yielded a central stalk or spike completely covered with colourful flowers. His Lupins boasted an extended blooming season and exceptional garden performance, and soon became one of the most beloved and iconic plants of all time: the 'Russell Hybrids'.
In The Records
Lupins get their name from the Latin lupus, meaning wolfish, in reference to the false belief that Lupins devour nutrients from the soil. The peas, known also as “Wolf Beans” were also said to be fit only to be eaten by wolves.
