ID star-shaped leaf with purple flowers on plume: perennial

Pittsburgh, PA

Hi,
I have a perennial in the garden of my new home. It has star-shaped leaves--shown next to the california poppy in the photo. Though the photo does not show it, the plant now has a stalk (curved plume) with purple flowers on it.

Any help with an ID would be much appreciated.
Thanks.
Supriya.

Is it a lupine perhaps? Like: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/904/

That was my thought but I need to see flowers to be sure.

My 1st thought too, looks like Lupine foliage

Are the seeds of this plant edible?
