Hi, when I looked up this flower, snapped on a local walk, on the ‘PlantSnap’ app, it said it was an endangered sweetpea. Can anyone tell me if this is correct?

Thank you.

This is lathyrus latifolius, also knwn as the everlasting pea, because, unlike the Sweet Peas you grow from seed each summer, they spring up again each year after dying back in winter. My garden is infested with them. They pop up amongst my herbaceous perennials and smother them if they get a chance.
They are certainly not endangered. I wish they were, at least in my garden!

Thank you Pauline, I knew it was unlikely. Good luck with keeping the blighter from overwhelming your perennials!
