Did you know that there are 138 lupine species native to California? They are easy to identify with their stalk of flowers and distinct leaf shape. The mix of California lupines vary in color from purple to pink, yellow to white, and blue to lavender. Nature follows patterns. Here we typically see shades of purple, lavender, and white.
While normally folks take photos of the side view of a plant, this one is from up above and shows the intricate pattern of flower petals. This photo is from Worsham Canyon in the Puente Hills Habitat Preservation Authority Preserve.
