Lupine are flowers that are in the Family Fabaceae (pea family) and the Genus Lupinus. They are usually blue or purple in color (pink and white are also fairly common) and the flowers grow in clusters on tall stalks. Their leaves are easy to recognize as they consist of 5-17 leaflets all originating from a central point. They are one of my favorite flowers as they are often the first to bloom in the springtime where I live in the Southern Sierra Nevada Foothills. Please feel free to attach your own photos of wild lupine flowers here!

Love lupines a lot. Great flowers. But so many species, which makes it diificult to identify the exact species. Cheers.
