Top 10 in PINK, PINK, PINK CHALLENGE in Wildflowers of the World

WINNER ’We’re In The Pink’ Challenge in Wildflowers of North America

Featured in Wildflowers Of North America

Lupinus, commonly known as lupin or lupine (North America), is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae.
There are over 200 wild species of lupine, and most are North American natives. That’s why many wildflower watchers know that a big part of our wildflower color from coast to coast, comes from lupines, those famous flowers with palm-shaped leaves and bright flower spikes that are usually blue, but can also be white, yellow, or with some species, even red.

The species are mostly herbaceous perennial plants 0.3–1.5 m (0.98–4.92 ft) tall, but some are annual plants and a few are shrubs up to 3 m (9.8 ft) tall.
Lupins have soft green to grey-green leaves which may be coated in silvery hairs, often densely so. The leaf blades are usually palmately divided into five to 28 leaflets, or reduced to a single leaflet in a few species of the southeastern United States. The flowers are produced in dense or open whorls on an erect spike, each flower 1–2 cm long. The pea-like flowers have an upper standard, or banner, two lateral wings, and two lower petals fused into a keel. The flower shape has inspired common names such as bluebonnets and quaker bonnets. The fruit is a pod containing several seeds.
