Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract: Lupines Below Landacre Cabin

Lupines growing on the slope just below the closed-off portion of El Moran St. and the Landacre Cabin appear to be a different variety than lupines growing on the Red Car Property or Corralitas Drive. The Semi Tropic lupines have larger paler purple flowers on sturdier stalks, 3 to 4-feet tall.

If you can help us further identify this or any other plant we highlight here, please contact us:

This month, we're taking a close-up view of the natural beauty of our neighborhood. All Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract photographs published on the Corralitas Red Car Property Blog in March 2009, are of plants growing on the 3 large lots destined for destruction, if a developer gains final approval of his proposed subdivision.

Neighbors will be back in front of City Council's PLUM Committee on March 24, 2009.
