The Arroyo Lupine (Lupinus succulentus) is a fast growing annual. It’s in the legume family, so it fixes nitrogen in the soil and is a great companion plant or cover crop for the vegetable garden. Produces dense spires of bright blue pea-sized blossoms with pink or white tips. Grows 2'-4' tall on sturdy stems with daisy-like palmate foliage. Put a few in a pot or plant in wide bands for a striking effect.

If consumed in large quantities, seeds can be toxic to people, pets, and livestock.
