Steve And Muffin’s Wildflowers #58.

Hi everyone! Today’s wildflower is the “Veiny Pea”, also called “forest pea” or “bushy vetchling”. It is a native wildflower that likes sunny or partly shaded areas in dry open forests and thickets. It will grow from 1 to 3 feet (30 to 90cm) tall with a cluster of 10 to 20 flowers. Each flower is from 1/2 to 3/4 inch (12 to 18mm) long. It blooms from May to July and is a very beautiful member of the wild pea family. This one is common around our town and heading west, but is hard to find east of here it seems, until you get beyond an hour’s drive east. In Canada this wildflower can be found from Alberta to Quebec, and in the US it’s found in many states from the Dakotas to New York, down to Georgia and across to New Mexico, but not in states between S. Dakota and Texas or further west. Have a great Friday everyone and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
