I was hiking along the Nimitz trail in the Oakland/Berkeley hills last weekend and saw large bush lupine that were mostly going to seed, but in a few more shady spots along the trail were in bloom with yellow flowers. This plant was about 4 feet tall. Anyone know what kind of Lupine this is? If so how diverse if the growing climate? Thanks Stu</p>

Sounds like you may have come across some Lupinus arboreus. You might look in a local flora to see if it is actually native to your area; I know that it has become a weed in some coastal areas out of its normal range.</p>
