White Vetch

I’m not entirely sure which species of vetch this is – tufted vetch (Vicia cracca)? Hairy vetch (Vicia villosa)?

I don’t know. What I do know, though, is that it grows all over the place here, and it’s always, always purple.

Except this one plant.

I was going to harvest seeds, but then it got mowed down literally the day after I took the pictures. Other vetches on the same meadow have grown back, but not the white one.

It’s really sad.
