The flower clusters are in an upright, terminal cluster on erect stems of showy palmately compound leaves, with 7-11 leaflets. A favorite as the Lupine family enhances soil fertility as a nitrogen fixer, this species can handle dry to moist soils and full sun to partial shade, requiring good drainage.
