Supposedly an annual but it keeps coming back year after year (according to inlaws) and garden centre said bacon and egg plant but Google disagrees. In full bloom now and swarmed with bees.

    I googled bacon and egg plant and got pictures of 3 different plants, Birds foot trefoil, tufted vetch and one i didn't recognize (another legume)

    or you could have bacon and eggplant caserole

    Hi Poached egg plan freely sets seed, and bees love it.

    It is now all over my garden, even soiless areas, hard paving etc.

    The yellow doesn't really go with my scheme but there is one that is called rosea and is white with pink veins. Would you suppose that one would be equally attractive to bees? xx
