I have two of these small plants that popped up this week in the woods. I have no idea what they could be. It is a shady wooded area. About 6-10″ tall and a pale purple color.

    At my house, Clitoria Mariana is perennial… I’ve even been successfully transplanting some of them into my flower beds…

    The one you have is generally growing along the ground. It and the “climbing butterfly pea” I have seen in the same area for two years now. So you might see it next year. I find them in NE Georgia (Lumpkin Co.) and Coastal GA (Glynn County). Pretty flowers.

    Thank you! I think you are right. From reading about it, it looks like it won’t come back next year.
