veiny pea, Lathyrus venosus

10:30 and 10 degrees. A good morning to have slept in a little. But I am sorry this is kind of late. This pea is a wild relative of sweet pea. It's a very close relative of marsh pea, differing in slightly fuzzy calyxes and drier habitat. It grows in AK, AL, AR, GA, IA, IL IN(T), KY, LA, MD, MI, MO, MN, NC, ND, NJ, NM, NY, OH, OK, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, VA, WI, WV, AB, MB, ON, QC, and SK. Lenawee Co MI, 6/3/12
