Are lupines the answer to my difficult yard?

A:

Kincaid's Lupine is a rare plant species in Oregon as you have found from your research. This species is associated with upland prairie and oak savanna habitats but can also be found on disturbed sites such as roadcuts and ditch banks. As of 2003, the species had been located on 48 different soil types. It often occurs on heavy soils with mesic to slightly xeric moisture regimes. If you can find seed and propagate this plant great! I don't know what your soil is like, but if you have seed, soil and opportunity, I would try it. Good Luck!
