Lupinus pilosus, commonly known as the blue lupine, is an Old World lupine, occurring from southern Greece through western Turkey to Israel. Its distribution broadly overlaps a second Old World lupine species, Lupinus palaestinus, but the two are never found in the same plant communities (allopatric). Both are species of edaphic environments, but Lupinus palaestinus is generally confined to the light soils of coastal Israel.
