Lupinus densiflorus aureus
I love Lupinus densiflorus! It grows perfectly in the Bay Area - no mildew, drought tolerant, perfect form, beautiful leaves, very upright 10” yellow spikes. And it makes a very pretty cut flower that lasts for 3 days. Hey - what else could you want? Reseeding? It does that, too! So there! 1-1.5’ tall & wide. Poor soil is fine.
