Clambering Crown Vetch

Crown Vetch is a ground cover commonly seen growing wild along highways and along nature paths. I started some a couple years ago, hoping to fill in a little slopey garden in the front yard, with not-so-great drainage. Ha! It loves it there! It is thriving, and you can see the crown vetch wending its way up through the weigela bushes, at points 4-5 feet high! It has a delicate light pinkish color.
