Hi folks, I've come across these seeds for sake for 'tree lupins' . Has anybody grown or seen these?

http://store.irishseedsavers.ie/mobile/Product.aspx?ProductCode=Seed-Lupi

They grow to 6ft tall at best and can be used as a hedge, however I wonder are they prone to greenfly like their smaller cousins?

I'm just curious...

I have a tree lupin and they are easy to grow. Mine has got rather sprawly, mainly because it is being shaded by other plants. I've seen them do well in full sun in a very well drained position. They seem pretty tough and not much bothered by pests.
