This plant, also known as the broadleaf snoutbean or prairie snoutbean grows all over east Texas and possibly my be a host plant for butterflies. It's hard to transplant for immediate pleasure because the leaves have a tendency to die but be patient. Within a few weeks a new plant will pop up within a few inches of the transplanted plant.
