It may be. I've never heard any name but "bluebonnet" used for L. =
Tirelat words, though, have a dual purpose of representing a unique =
and a larger group of related species, so "gulelhom" in the broader sense
includes the whole genus Lupinus (as for instance in English, "starling"
can either refer to a certain species, Sturnus vulgaris, or any member of
the starling family).
