Mouse vetch or mouse pea (lat. Vicia cracca)
A perennial herbaceous plant, a species of the genus Pea (Vicia) of the Legume family (Fabaceae). Mouse pea is a plant up to 120 cm tall, naked, or with pressed gray hairs. The stems are weak, clinging, ribbed, and usually branched. A very polymorphic species. The degree of pubescence of all parts of the plant varies the size and shape of the leaves, the color of the corolla. The leaves are alternate, 5-12 cm long, paired-feathered, on short petioles with 6-10 pairs of leaflets, ending in strongly branched antennae. The common petiole of the leaf is short 0.5-1 cm long; at the base of it, there is a pair of small whole-edged semi-spiral stipules. Leaflets 1.5—3 cm long and 2-4 mm wide, horizontally prostrate, thin linear, pointed or rounded at the top, pubescent on both sides or from below. Inflorescence-brush. The brushes are thick, multi-flowered (up to 40 flowers), on long axillary peduncles that exceed the leaves in length. The flowers are moth-like, 8-11 mm long, bright or light purple, sometimes white. The upper petal of the flower (flag) is equal in length to the lower petal (boat). Blooms in June-August. The beans are 15-20, rarely up to 25 mm long and 4-6 mm wide, oblong, with 4-6 seeds. The seeds are spherical, 2.3-3 mm in diameter, black with spots.
