Photo: Russell Lupin Picture Fiordland

The roadside is ablaze with colour as the Russell Lupins bloom from early to mid summer in Fiordland National Park.

Although the Russell Lupin is a perennial plant which is native to North America, it is widespread in the South Island of New Zealand such as the field pictured here in Fiordland.

Large spikes which bear colourful blooms grow to a height of 1-1.5 metres with a spread of 45-60cm. Flowering spikes shoot high above the mid-green foliage. The flowers are arranged in whorls on racemes 15-60 cm long in a variety of colours including blue, orange, pink, purple, red, white, and yellow. Some racemes are one solid colour and some are bi-coloured.

Russell Lupins are traditional cottage garden plants which bloom from early to mid summer.
