Hairypod cowpea (Vigna luteola)

Image of hairypod cowpea

Description:

The hairypod cowpea is a native vine that serves as the larval host plant for several butterflies including the cassius blue, gray hairstreak and long-tailed skipper. They were being pollinated by a team of frisky leafcutter bees, who were just too quick for me to photograph.
