This plant has come up in a compost heap. This heap receives the
leftover props from a college Economic Botany course, so it might be
anything. The foliage looks very much like regular Pisum sativum
(English pea) foliage, except that so far, there are no tendrils--and
the plant is over a foot tall. The leaflets are thin but a little
rubbery and glaucous. The flowers are about an inch long, white with
maroon blotches on the wing petals. No fruit yet.
