Hi Mischief, pinto peanut is a ground cover legume which is good for animal grazing and orchard under-tree plantings instead of just grasses. I grow it from cuttings, but seed is available which usually arrives pre-inoculated with N fixing bugs. It is quite dry tolerant and is in full flower here atm. Nice little yellow flowers. Don't let it get into your potted plants or vege gardens as it is difficult to eradicate, but spreads slowly unless disturbed. Another name for it is Amarillo peanut. There are no actual peanuts to eat, but pigs love digging them up and grazing on them.
