Tree Lupin Flower

The biological name for the tree lupin is  Lupinus arboreus. This plant is a secondary coloniser and tends to grow in poor quality soils. These plants help to stabalise the soil and provide shelter for the growth of other species. They have a mutualsitic relationship with a species of rhizobium bacteria and are therefore able to "fix" nitrogen. After death of the plant these minerals will be available for the use of other plants in the community.
