Bright Blooms - Big Impact

Wow wow wow! Manhattan Lights is a dream of a Lupine, with flower stalks that can reach 2 to 3 feet long on sturdy, long-lasting stems. This plant blooms early and heavily, often remaining in color for up to 2 months.

Manhattan Lights comes to us from Devon, England, where it is grown as part of the Westcountry™ series. This is nothing less than a whole new type of Lupine, with much bigger and more abundant blooms that last far longer than traditional varieties. If you are used to the beautiful but short-lived wild lupines, get ready for a pleasant shock.

These blooms combine bright yellow with royal purple. (Add the green foliage and you have a Mardi Gras colors.) The flowers begin in late spring in many climates, and continue for 6 to 8 weeks. They are spectacular in the garden, but are almost irresistible for cutting, too. Hummers, bees, and butterflies pay their respects, so get your camera ready.

This plant likes acidic, well-drained, moisture-retentive soil. It does need good drainage above all else. It is a nitrogen-fixer, so chop the plants up and plow them into the soil after they finally pass (expect about 5 years of good blooming from this Lupine). Manhattan Lights will delight you!

Underwhelmed

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I ordered this plant in the beginning of May, I thought I would receive it while flowering. I received the plant at the end of May and it consisted of one upright (flowerless) stem with two broken leaves. Nothing else. Needless to say it will not be flowering this year, perhaps I can enjoy it next year.....
