Lupine

I love lupines but have never had any luck growing them. I spotted these in the gardens at Spadina House.

These are spectacular flowers. Never hear of lupines without thinking of the Monty Python bit about them.

I do believe we have these here. I think I've seen dark red ones. They are especially pretty! And this is a super photo!

I'm with you. I tried lupines for four or five years but long ago gave up. But your photo is good. That counts for something, doesn't it?
