Notes:

This plant grows in sandy soil in the Georgia piedmont. It has a yellow, pea like flower and perfoliate leaves. The flower blooms between the stem and the leaf. In the fall the pea-like fruit turns black and falls off. The bush dies down in the winter. It grows two to three feet wide and about a foot tall.
