Lupinus diffusus from Nancy in SC

Posted on |

The plant is about 12 to 14 inches tall (with blooms) and is growing under pine trees in light shade in Aiken, SC, most likely in sandy soil. I see many smaller plants spread over the area, but not all are blooming.

Hi Nancy,

your plant is one of the lupines, Lupinus diffusus, a species in the bean family with single-bladed leaves fairly common especially in the sandhills.  A very attractive native plant.

I apologize for the delay in my reply. I had software issues that only now have been fixed. Thank you for your patience.
