Wild Lupins [Daily Photo #791]

Lupins in bloom!

Lupinus polyphyllus

Did ya know they can grow on pretty bad soil improving it for future generations of plants? Lupins are badass!

Wikipedia says,
“Like other legumes, they can fix nitrogen from the atmosphere into ammonia via a rhizobium–root nodule symbiosis, fertilizing the soil for other plants. This adaptation allows lupins to be tolerant of infertile soils and capable of pioneering change in barren and poor-quality soils. The genus Lupinus is nodulated by Bradyrhizobium soil bacteria.”
