Net-leaf Leather Flower

7 Aug

I found this flowering vine behind our local community center, along an old barbed wire fence next to the railroad tracks. What I noticed first was the beautiful white seed pod. The one flower in the photo looks to have been eaten by a grasshopper. I don’t think this is a host plant for butterflies.
