Have had this for a number of years in the garden (not sure if grown from seed or bought in pot), but don't have record of the name. Produces seeds in pea-like pods, small purple flowers, the vines will cover the entire fence, and can survive through some frost in late fall, and the vine has "tenacles" for attachment (like a grape vine, dont know the word), and comes back consistently each year from same spot (perennial). Anyone know what it is? This is the best picture for the time being.
