|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.
