Went on a hike along the Mark O. Hatfield trail yesterday and saw a lot of beautiful wildflowers. Wondering if anyone can ID this one for me?

RE: Wild plant ID?

looking like vetch-- Vicia villosa maybe?

RE: Wild plant ID?

Looks like a couple of plants :-) Vetch for sure (I'd guess Vicia cracca if they encourage native plantings) and lupines, probably Lupinus polyphyllus. One of my favorite of the spring wildflowers - blooms all over the place here in Kitsap.

RE: Wild plant ID?

Yes, the majority is lupine with some interspersed vetch.

Thanks everyone!! ;-)
