the flowers
Thumb of 2013-08-24/jojoe/b2a1da

The vine grows thick & covers the ground

It also has these long shoots that grow out of it

In the middle picture there's grass and other things growing mixed in with the vine because of where it's growing.If anyone knows what it is i would appreciate the information.

Actually... clitoria is an upright non vining herbaceous perennial.
This plant is a centrosema virginianum Note the wider flower shape.

I've been potting up some of these wonderful natives this year...

I looked at some of the pictures in the database and noticed some looked more like a bush and not a vine.What i have in my yard is definately a vine running all over the ground.

So mine is centrosema virginianum and not Atlantic pigeonwings (Clitoria mariana)

The flowers are beautiful and really look alike in both plants!!

Thank you
