Lupinus arboreus (yellow bush lupine)
Lupinus arboreus (yellow bush lupine)
While Lupinus arboreus is native from the San Francisco Bay Area south, it is considered invasive further north. Around Humboldt Bay, it invades coastal dunes, replacing a diverse plant community with a dense monoculture of shrubs.
