Lupinus microcarpus

Flowering on the balcony at this moment.
 I obtained the seeds from
 THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN SOCIETY seed exchange and sowed them, in a pot, mid-October.
 Several plants grew, this  one very strongly.

No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

It makes an unexpectedly lovely pot-plant - thanks for showing us, Hilary
