Default Pink & White 3D petals, is called?

Growing wild now, in June, Northern Illinois. About 1 inch across, 1.5 - 2 feet high.

Thank you.

Looked at your photo this morn and all I could come up with was it may be in the wild pea family but knew that wasn't correct.
Just hit me now while weeding out back. It's a crown vetch and HIGHLY INVASIVE!

It's what road crews sometimes plant on a really slanted soil surface to keep it from eroding as it fills in real quick!
Some green houses STILL sell it to unsuspecting people who want a plant that naturalises well. Well it sure DOES!!!!!!!

Thank you so much. And as it happens, it was on slanted surfaces that I came upon these, at the side of a highway.

I am still battling the stuff on our property after having it mostly eradicated.

Beautiful photo. Terrible plant outside of its natural range--Eurasia.
