False Lupine is a rare plant in the Pea Family. It is also called the Large-leaf Golden-banner. The taxonomy of the genus is unsettled and several varieties have been proposed. Some authors say this plant is found throughout California, perhaps even into Oregon. Other sources say that this plant is endemic to the Santa Ynez Mountains of Santa Barbara County, California. Another dispute between "lumpers" and "splitters".
