I did not plant this and it just started growing out of nowhere. The only thing i think could have happened was it was mixed in with some seeds I purchased. I am thrilled that this is growing in my flower bed, it reminds of an oriental type of plant. It continues to flower without deadheading. It is growing in partial shade, mostly in the sun and I have head to trim back a few long arms. I have saved the faded flower petals for propegation next year.If you have any idea what is I would love to know.
It appears to be a common vetch. < aka a common weed which in my garden can be invasive> you may want to reconsider keeping this in your garden.You won't need the faded flower petals for propagation as petals won't propagate but if you just leave it in your garden you will most likely have all your want next year.It does pull up fairly easy though.
Thank you Rebecca for helping identify this (unique to me) looking plant. The only reason I kept the dried petals is because the seeds are actually encased in them. Yet another oddity about this plant. It definatley has been trimmed back because it does seem to have the tendacy to overtake everything, I may just relocate it.
