This member of the legume family sports yellow racemes of pea flowers from summer into fall. Our single flowering plant (one of a crop grown from seed last year) is still small - expect a more impressive photo next year.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
