#vetch friend or foe. I don’t know .. saw it at the school’s parking lot by the garden and took a cutting in late Feb. It was kinda weed like. But I liked the flower and here it is. #domsabode #niching

If you have a space you can keep it in check it is lovely. Dont let the pods ripen except a few for seeds if you like... Lesson leaned..

Thanks @cyndi I have it in a pot now and will heed to your advice and watch the pods. I’m already cutting back my morning glories back almost daily. Don’t need another task. Lol.

@cyndi is right, it will overrun you if you're not careful! But when it's flowering, it can be quite pretty
