My entry for http://www.gardeninggonewild.com/?p=4982 's photo contest is this Lupinus sericatus growing in my Not-So-Secret-Garden in Carmichael, California. this is an area approximately 25' x 75' which has recently been planted with many types of Cal. Native, drought tolerant, DEER RESISTANT (so far!) plants. At the moment, this lupin is my favorite.
