I *think* I may have found this one. tephrosia chrysophylla....scurf hoarypea. Anyone agree??

Just got laundry off the line and discovered more blooming...in white. Same plant. Got pics, but they're still in/on the camera.

Hasn't that got pale flowers, or can they be more than one colour?

These could turn colour but the calyx doesn't look to match ..

Tephrosia spicata has red flowers .. but they start pale yellow. The calyx are hairy ..

There's a couple in Florida which don't bring up any photos, Tephrosia X floridana and Tephrosia rugelii.

Phooey..my yard is making me crazy Blinking this is where I was when I thought I had an ID
http://www.easttennesseewildflowers.com
Album Florida Wildflowers(Florida Panhandle) pic #41...pic #42 looks like the white and was IDd as SPIKED hoary pea... tephrosia spicata. Both are growing side by side and look the same except for bloom color...seed pods match. I'll see about dumping the white pics tomorrow. Dogs are acting like they haven't eaten in a month. Just goes to show...pride goeth before a fall...I really thought I had finally figured one out by myself Whistling

OK...1st is both toghther...the rosey red is definately past it's peak. Next two are the white. Think both are tephrosia (hoary pea) of some sort. Stems, leaves and seed pods are the same.Thumb of 2012-07-02/gingin/cbce35 Thumb of 2012-07-02/gingin/873ded Thumb of 2012-07-02/gingin/e5b0f0

Jay...that is my choice for the "rosey red". The 3rd link you posted shows it in different colors....so do you think the white is the same OR tephrosia spicata ??? Thanks to ATP I could learn to hate my yard Blinking Rolling on the floor laughing (not really) I love all the wildflowers that pop up, but never REALLY thought about who they are excapt to think "I'm so glad I got to see this before Bill cut the grass". Usually stuff is in bloom about the time of the first cut of the season so I don't always get to see anything after it blooms for awhile. (does that make any sense?) Not so this year...been too dry to cut as it was last year especially at end of summer giving things a chance to grow into the next year. I *think* most are natives and left untouched would do more. IF I were a "bathtub" person I would say "calgon, take me away!!" Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
