Is this a sweet pea? I posted a pic earlier of just the leaves. Now it is blooming and looks kind of like one. The flower is about the size of my pinkie fingernail. but the ones I've had are huge with dark pink flowers. It does have a pod like a sweet pea. thanks

This only has one flower per vine yes there are tiny seed pods. Leaves look different but maybe because it's a young plant.YOu can see the seed pod on the right of the flower in the first pic.
Anyway it's coming out. It's wrapping itself around the azealea plants I'm afraid it will smother them out. Here' another pic. Thanks

I didn't think so either Toots I had sweet pea in Colo. and leaves didn't look like that. I thought at first it was a clem but not the right kind of flower. Thanks

She said it's from the fabaceae-pea family. She was researching more too. I hope someone tells me for sure. I googled it but doesn't look like my plant.

This id came from another board.
Clitoria mariana - large-flowered wild twining vine of southeastern and central United States having pale blue flowers. Also known as wild butterfly pea.
I looked it up but only showed blue flowers.

Swamp on NY said:Based on leaf arrangement and pod type- I'd go with Lathyrus spp. Closest I can get i image is the following. Don't let the color fool you. There is very little genetic difference between pink, violet and white in peas. His purple may be due to a filter. There are other Lathyrus species in your area. It's a Sweet pea cousin.

Whatever it is it's gone!! I pulled it up and put in trash.
Thanks Toots!!!
