Vicia cracca

Tufted Vetch - Flowers from June to August. Very common in roadsides and hedgerows around Ireland. Adds attractive colour to hedgerows and ditches. Some consider it to be an invasive species as it sometimes strangles other vegetation. It's compound leaves with tendrils (that allow the plant to attach to other plants or objects).
