I need help identifying this weed growing around the edges of my yard. It is growing in an open lot directly beside my house and is creeping into my front yard from the empty lot. It's also in my backyard growing up and starting to cover a 6ft high shadowbox fence. It grows quite quickly.

I'm leaning toward Butterfly Pea Vine possibly.

Trailing Wild Bean (Strophostyles helvola) would be my guess, but there are numerous other things it might be:


Has it produced any flowers?
