Lupinus is a very large genus, including over 200 different species. Usually Lupines are a perennial plant, but they can be annual plants and even shrubs. These are popular ornamental plants that are often grown in gardens and there are many hybrids available.


They seem to prefer cooler, more moist environments.


I noticed these beautiful pink Lupines on the edge of the marsh trail. I'm not sure how "wild" they are, since they are a flower often grown in gardens, they could easily have spread from somewhere else around town. Later in the summer I also noticed some pretty purple Lupines growing on a bank next to the lake. I have seen many in gardens through the years.
