Hi Monnee,

Lupinus ‘Tequila Flame’ (http://www.shootgardening.co.uk/plant/lupinus-tequila-flame) should be fine in your raised bed. It’s a hardy plant, so you won’t need to remove it in winter. Simply deadhead after flowering, and just to be on the safe side protect the crown with horticultural fleece or something similar over winter.

If your bed is fairly exposed you might want to consider staking the plant to help it stay upright and not get bent over by winds.

Don’t forget to add it to your ‘plants I have’ list to receive regular care instructions and information.

Good luck and let us know how you get on!
