Lupinus sp. 2

Wildflowers Dicots Eudicots Fabales Fabaceae Lupinus

Miniscule unidentified lupine. There’s a patch of these growing on Cold Spring trail, by the edge of the fire road, underneath the pylons. They are tiny. Much smaller than the miniature lupine. Each leaf rosette is perhaps 1/2 inch in diameter, the flower spike only gets about 3~4 inches above the earth. The flower spike sometimes seems to zig-zag, altering direction slightly at each flower.

First seen blooming near the end of March.

This might be a small variant of L. nanus
