I found a plant near my house in Malahat on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. It seems to be some sort of bean.

It is a vine and has pods that are about an inch long and the seeds are about 2 mm across; they are brown with tiny black spots.

Could anyone identify it for me?

  • Do you have photographs of the plant as well? If you have them, the whole plant as well as close-ups of the leaves, flowers and pods. Thanks!
