'You mean the flower lupine?' Sorry couldn't resist a bit of Monty Python humor. If you haven't seen it, you woldn't get it, but a very funny skit.

Anyhow, the flower lupine. Or Coulter's Lupine, if you prefer to be more exact. Grows very small unless well watered or in a nice shady spot (and fairly-well watered). Close up...a very interesting shape.
And ones well-watered. In the foreground are seed pods growing along the stems. The seeds look like pebbles; a good means of survival, I would think.
