These seeds were collected from Lupinus perennis, also known as Wild Lupine, and Sundial Lupine. This perennial likes to live in sun to partial shade where it can grow up to 2 feet high. The blue and violet blossoms are on display from late spring until early summer. The seeds are protein rich and can be cooked and eaten like a bean, or roasted, or powdered. The seed pods can also be cooked and eaten as a vegetable. This is a larval host plant for the Frosted Elfin, Wild Indigo Duskywing, and Melissa Blue butterflies. Lupinus in general is a larval host for the Queen Alexandras Sulphur, Western Sulphur, Afranius Duskywing, and Arrowhead Blue butterflies, and the Hystrichophora stygiana moth.
