Wild Beach Lupine

We spotted some Blue Bush Lupine (Lupinus arboreus) on the sand dunes along the southern part of Ocean Beach in San Francisco.

Above you can see the Blue Bush Lupine in the middle, some wild Beach Strawberry (Fragaria chiloensis) with smooth glossy green leaves just below, and to the right is some of that invasive iceplant with the purplish pink flowers.

Max our border collie loves this dog park area and it gives us a good place to spot some cool plants…such as that Yellow Lupine we spotted earlier, and Dudleya.

Here is a plant (above) that I could not identify.  If you click on the pic, it gets super big as with most of our pics.  Anybody have any thoughts what this flowering plant is?

  1. Beautiful (huge sigh). That last picture, not sure. Kind of looks like an Allium, but the flowers appear to have five petals, maybe an Armeria sp?

  2. Beautiful shots. I want to be there right now!
