Golden-pea (Thermopsis montana var. ovata)
This attractive plant is sometimes called “false lupine” due to its resemblance to another pea family member and other times, “mountain goldenbanner.” Close inspection reveals that the Golden-peas leaflets come in threes compared to the 5 of true lupines. Some sources call it inedible, while others claim it may be poisonous. Either way, don’t eat it.
