About lupin 'noble maiden'

Lupins (Lupinus polyphyllus) were introduced into Britain from North America in 1826. This traditional cottage garden perennial had the plain blue flowered spikes, occasionally with some whiter flowers. Fast forward to 1937 and the RHS awarded its highest honour to a George Russell for developing a strain of Lupins that caused a stir.
George Russell developed his Lupins by rigorous selection of seedlings, aiming and achieving a central stalk or spike totally obscured by colourful flowers. Bred for a long flowering period with unbeatable garden performance, he produced one of the most popular and distinctive plants in history, the ever popular ‘Russell Hybrids’

In The Records

Lupins gets their name from the Latin lupus, meaning wolfish, in reference to the false belief that Lupins devours nutrients from the soil. The peas, known also as “Wolf Beans” were also said to be fit only to be eaten by wolves.
