PURPLE "HAIRY" VETCH (Vicia Villosa Roth) by 

Last week I spotted these purple wildflowers growing along Clarks Valley Road, but you know who wouldn’t stop the car!! Today I was by myself and stopped for a photo shoot!!

  • Hairy Vetch (Vicia villosa Roth) is a native of Europe. It is a climbing vine with blue-violet to purple flowers, arranged in a crowded, one-sided spike arising on a long flower stalk from the leaf axil. In spring, the plant produces 3 to 10 long, weak, branching stems or vines 3 to 6 ft long. The leaves have 12 to 20 leaflets and terminate with tendrils. The purple and white flowers appear in late spring (mid-June) and are borne in a cluster, or raceme, and the stem is hairy. Hairy Vetch is found in a variety of habitats including fields, pastures, and roadsides.
