Interested in College in Alaska?

Nootka Lupine
Lupinus nootkatensis

I had previously thought that there was more than one species of lupine that grows in the Sitka area, but after consulting various books, it seems that this species is the only one. It is most common in the alpine areas around here, but I have also seen it at lower elevations.

Location: Harbor Mountain-Gavan Hill Trail, Sitka, Alaska
