Vicia sativa

Vicia sativa

Common name common vetch
Family fabaceae
Life cycle annual
Flowers pink

Not a particularly common weed in our garden, but apparently birds recently gifted us with some, right underneath our star magnolia. Semi-climbing plant with attractive leaves and pretty pea flowers. As long as it's not hard to contain, I have no problem allowing it to grow in a few isolated areas.

This is a weed in our garden
