Over a dozen lupine species can be found in the Mojave Desert; lupinus concinnus is one of the most common, and distinctive owing to the small leaflets and the long, dense, white hairs covering most parts of the plant. Flowers are pinkish purple, with the largest petal (the banner) either white or yellowish. Plants inhabit sandy, low elevation regions between southern California and far west Texas.
