Lupinus pilosus is the rarest of the plants included in The Royal Bank of Canada Garden, which was designed by Hugo Bugg, for The RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016. This rare, blue flowered lupin grows in Dibeen, an arid, dry area of Jordan. The beautiful plants and landscape that Hugo Bugg discovered on his visits to Jordan, provided the inspiration for this garden. In his Show Garden for The Royal Bank of Canada, Hugo hoped to demonstrate how beautiful drought tolerant plants can be.
