FEB 15, 2006 BUTTERFLY PEA
N. Walker

Sorry, but this plant is not a native wildflower. It is a legume that originated in asia and is sometimes used as a livestock forage crop. The plant probably was taken to Wade Mountain be early settlers, possibly the people who built the rock wall. Butterfly pea has also been spotted near the Land Trust parking lot on Bankhead Parkway.
