Anyone recognize this little pink wildflower?

Hi,

Looking for an ID on this. It is a small plant, maybe 4-6" across. The flowers are look kind of sweet-pea-like, about a half inch across, and a darker pink (medium) than is shown here. It does not vine. It grows in full sun to full shade, and is drought-tolerant.

I would sure appreciate help on this.

Thanks,

Since it is drought tolerant, could be Lathyrus japonicus (Beach Pea) or possibly one of the other numerous Lathyrus sp., both native & introduced.

Here is a link that might be useful: Beach Pea

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't think it's that exact one as it is very tiny, only about two inches high. The leaves are about 1" x 1/2". I'm going to look up others in that genus and see if it's one of them.

I cannot see any picture or link in the original email.

Hmmm. What do you see instead? It is a direct imbedded photo. I'll put in another one.

Maybe Centroseum sp.

Looks like it could be vetch (vicia) of which there are several varieties.
