I had this ID'ed a few years ago on my property with a pink flower and haven't seen much of it since. My friend Tieah @Pinkbud sent me a photo to id it. Memory is shot. Please help

Sky-blue Lupine (Lupinus diffusus)

I went back to DG in my original query and found Stacey had ID'ed my pink one as Lady Lupine. @pinkbud yours is this one. Check the link above.

I also found that it is not good to try to move it, just protect it fro your plant mowing brother. LOL

I thought the flower looked like a Lupine but the leaves threw me. Lupines don't move. They have taproots growing to the center of the earth and if you damage the taproot, you have lost the plant.

Luckily, the seeds sprout readily and if you plant them in a pot, then you can put them where you most want them after the grow a little.
