Not on their plant list. Hoping one among you will ID this Lupine. Fantastic nodding collection of plants there. I tip my hat to you.

I know nothing about Lupinus and my first thought was maybe a variety of Silver Lupine (Lupinus albifrons) There are a few listings in the database: https://garden.org/plants/sear... and I found this photo when googling: http://ruthbancroftgarden.tumb...

Or maybe Lupinus sericatus ? Second set of photos on this page: http://ruthbancroftgarden.tumb... The leaves sure look a lot like those shown in your photo.
