Lupinus ammophilus

Lupinus ammophilus  (Sand-loving Lupine)
Fabaceae (Pea Family)
 

Foothills. Woodlands, openings. Spring, summer.
Nature Center at Butler Corner, May 21, 2017.

This short form (only one to two feet tall) of Lupinus spreads by rhizomes and as a result dozens of plants are found close to each other.

Flower stems are numerous and dozens of showy flowers ascend the stems.

Stems rise above a base of many long-petioled, large leaves with 5-10 leaflets. The upper side of the leaflets is almost glabrous and the lower side has scattered long hairs.
