The closest thin I can find is Arachis glabrata or Arachis hypogaea. I'm not sure how to tell them apart.

Did you find out more gin? I have something similar that I was going to post... thought I'd check with you first.

Here's a pic of mine. Does it look like your plant?

It does kinda as near as I can tell. No I have not yet figured it out for sure....I *think* my pic of the bloom is right side up, where as your's looks upside down from mine. Wish we lived closer to town....I'd show up at the county extension with a basket full of unknown wildflowers from my yard Whistling

I thought Jay's suggestion of Arachis was a good one?

There's two species in Florida, I'm not sure if there are others not mentioned on the USDA site.

http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=ARACH

Arachis prostrata

http://www.calhouncountyherbarium.org/arachisprostratah.htm

Arachis hypogaea

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peanut

http://tjdemogarden.wordpress.com/2011/04/05/designing-the-j...

I can't tell for sure from the photos, but Arachis prostrata looks very close.

That looks a reasonable suggestion or thereabouts for Christine's plant Kent, but it's Ginger's plant in the first post which we are talking about.

Ginger ---- Crotalaria rotundifolia or Rabbitbells

http://www.southeasternflora.com/view_flora.asp?plantid=784

Apparently it's a desirable native:

Me agrees Ginger! Interchangeable plant life. Hmmmm..... makes me think we should check each others profiles for images added to the db when we need an ID to see if the other already ID'd it. nodding

Although I haven't seen the Rabbitbells on our place yet. But I've seen the stuff all over Fl.!
