Beautiful, if invasive, lupines along Lake Superior

After seeing the little lupines that grow profusely in Texas Hill Country this spring, I was excited to find real lupines (tall, multi-colored spikes) growing along the roadsides of Lake Superior’s North Shore in June.

These are the same giant ones I regularly see in northern Wisconsin and I was pleased to see how many were in bloom in Minnesota this year . . . even if they are an invasive non-native variety. 🙁

They are so pretty. And so much bigger than those Texas lupines!
