This grows wild, looks like a legume and has whitish flowers. It usually grows in places that are moist from time to time. Just wondered what it is.

Probably Vetch? If possible, a better closeup of the blooms would be good.

That's the best pic I took...not a very good camera. If I can, I'll go back where they were located soon.

I agree with dave about it being a vetch, but I just can't nail this one down. I looks like the flowers in this pic are very early stage. The appear unopened and compact. a closer picture with the flowers opened might help and maybe a wider shot of the whole plant.

Whew, this is an old thread.
Looks like it might be Crown Vetch Securigera varia, synonym Coronilla varia; listed as invasive in several Texas counties.
