A collection of flora from the pacific wonderland.

Broad-leaf Lupine (Lupinus latifolius)

Lost Pass, Olympic NP. 8/2010.

All Lupines share the easily identifiable palmate leaf. Particular lupine species are notoriously difficult to identify.   The Broad-leaf (latifolius) is known for turning the sub-alpine meadows blue in the summer, as we found these in the dreamy flower-strewn Lost Valley deep in Olympic National Park.
