Sweet pea from Haley in SC

Found it growing out of some indian hawthorne which is planted along the foundation of our office building. We are located in Greenville, South Carolina.


This is Lathyrus, apparently Lathyrus odoratus, the sweet pea – but it also could be L. latifolius – a similar escape from cultivation.  Neither are native, both have showy bean-type pink flowers.
