shyleaf, Aeschynomene americana

Which way is up? Shyleaf doesn't seem to care as it sprawls and clambers. The quarter inch flowers are liable to point any which way. At first getting an image seemed a challenge, but then, just go with it. An American native, this species is now pretty much pan-tropical. Here it grows in AL, FL, GA, LA, and MD. Native only in Florida. Lake Co FL, 10/20/15.
