There is a vine that comes up every year and the flower looks like sweet peas and a beautiful purple. Is there a name for it or is it just a wild thing? cillay

Do you have a photo? There may be several possibilities. The first that popped in my mind was vetch.

I do not have photos but vetch is not it. The little blowers look exactly like sweet peas but much smaller. Thanks cillay

The Common Vetch perhaps?
