Insight into Broad-leaved Everlasting-pea (Lathyrus latifolius): an escapee, it’s found on roadsides, railway banks, sea cliffs and waste ground. It’s similar to the native Narrow-leaved Everlasting-pea (Lathyrus sylvestris).
It flowers from June to August but, disappointingly, the bright-coloured flowers are unscented.
