What's going on with the lupins, they have pale growth and the leaves have spots on them. Some clumps are fine,some are growing so slowly. You would think with the heat we've had they would be more advanced than they are, or could this be the problem, too much!

Some lupins are biennials - maybe this is their year off!

The lupins are Russell Hybrids grown from seed this spring. It is just one clump I am having difficulties with. The other ones appear to be okay so far. It says they are perennials on the package.

The lupins planted by the department of highways here on Vancouver Island, as well as ours in the nursery and at home have been affected. Brown blotching and leaf curling then drying. All you can do is pretty well pick off the diseased leaves and clean up debris on the ground. It's most likely a brought on by moist hot humid weather conditions which cause the spores of a fungus to spread rapidly. Give them some regular TLC, fertilzer and a shot of kelp (sea spray if available).

I have had wonderful luck, by the grace of God. I planted them in the worse soil, in a harsh climate at the cottage and they come back every year and they seem to be larger every year. Maybe neglect helps. My neighbour at home has several species both annual and perrenial and has found that this has been a poor year. I guess I should be proud. Have you ever seen one picked and put in water, if you ever have several try it, they are very interesting.
