Lupin is a favourite wildflower that grows in the ditches and fields of the maritime provinces. As with many farmsteads, on Twelve Acre Hill lupin had been eradicated over the years as they are quite invasive and are often seen as weeds. We have reintroduced them in a contained “wild flower bed”. I love their complicated structures and the way their spikes dwindle to points that curve gracefullly in different directions. They appear in white and pink as well, but purple/blue is the dominant colour.
