Lathyrus japonicus / Hamaendou ハマエンドウ

 
Lathyrus japonicus is a perennial herb found in sandy soil in seashores, the whole being powdery white and stems angular. The stems crawl on the ground to grow to about1m long, and the leaves are of a pinnately compound leaf, with 6-12 leaflets, 1.5-3cm long, 1-2cm wide, and oblong. Stipules are big, about the same size as the leaflets, and flowers set themselves 3-6 in a racemose way. Vexilla are red-purple at first and turn into blue-purple later. White flowers can occur rarely. Bloom time: April-July.
