Abstract:
Lupinus havardii is a winter annual native to a rather narrow geographical range in the Big Bend region of southwestern Texas. Plant populations and morphology vary greatly depending upon rainfall. Flowers are showy and generally violet-blue in color, although pink and white flowers are occasionally found in the plant's native range. This paper summarizes our observations regarding the distribution, biology, and potential horticultural uses of this desert legume.
