Description from Wikipedia

Lupinus arboreus, yellow bush lupine (USA) or tree lupin (UK), is a species of flowering plant in the legume family Fabaceae, native to California, where it is widely distributed among coastal scrub and sand dunes. Because it has been widely introduced, there is some uncertainty about its native range; it is thought to be native from Point Reyes National Seashore south to San Luis Obispo County.

Conservation Summary

  • Globally
    vulnerable (G3G4) (Source: NatureServe)
    Vulnerable. Occurs, as native, in California, near coast, Ventura to Del Norte counties and northward. This species was planted in Oregon as a 'sand binder' (Peck 1961) and it has naturalized north into Washington and British Columbia. This species in California grades into <i>L. rivularis</i> in the North Coastal range (Hickman 1993). Further, this species is considered 'invasive' and is hybridizing with <i>L. rivularis </i>in British Columbia (COSEWIC 2002).
