Using ecology to restore land and water
Wild lupine is a long-lived perennial with showy flowering stalks heavily clustered with blue flowers. Small pods form in early summer and eject the seeds away from the parent plant. It can tolerate poor soils since it’s capable of fixing nitrogen to enhance soil fertility. Wild lupine grows in well-drained soils in dry, sandy prairies and woodland edges.
