Broad-leaved Everlasting-pea

with No Comments
A spectacular display of bright pink Broad-leaved Everlasting-pea was seen scrambling over a hedge on the roadside at the far end of The Lizard peninsula in Cornwall.

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.
