Steve And Muffin’s Wildflowers #57.

Hello everyone and welcome back! Today’s wildflower is the “American Vetch”, also called the “Purple Vetch”. These are members of the pea family and are a native wildflower that will grow in sun or partial shady areas in fields, open woods and along roads. Individual flowers are 1/2 to 3/4 inch (12 to 18mm) long and there are usually 2 to 9 flowers in loose clusters. They bloom from May to September and will grow much like a vine up to 3 feet (90cm) long. They can be found across Canada except in the east coast provinces, and in the US except the far northeast states and the southeast states. Have a great day everyone and God bless!

    • Hi Renee! Yes, I like the color of these, too bad there’s not that many around town. But we don’t have to go far out of town to find lots of them.
