Pretty Purple Beach Pea Wildflower On Cape Cod.

The little purple and pinkish Beach Pea wildflowers are blooming all over the Cape. I’ve seen at them at Fort Hill and at most of the beaches.

The Beach Pea is a vine-like plant with many irregularly shaped 1″ flowers suspended above the plant. They bloom in June and July along the dunes and salt marshes, so you have plenty of time to see them!

Interesting fact: They got their name because their fruit resembles a garden pea. So pretty, don’t you think?
