Vetchy, Vicia, Vetchling
Crown vetch
Narrow-Leaved Vetch
Slender Vetch
Crown vetch (Coronilla varia) Narrow-leaved vetch (Vicia angustifolia) Slender vetch (Vicia tetrasperma)
Tuesday I found 3 species of Vetch in bloom, all within 200 feet of each other. The Crown vetch population in particular was large and spreading. Vetches are members of the Pea Family (Fabaceae), and the species above are just three of many that have been introduced to the U.S. and are now considered invasive.
