8 most common species:
Vigna luteola
Hairypod cowpea
The common name for Vigna luteola derives from "waakimbala", a Native American Chickasaw word that means "hairypod cowpea." This plant has a particularly robust ability to repel pests because of the high levels of quercetin and isorhamnetin in its leaves. The genus name "luteola" translates to "yellow", referring to the plant's gold-colored flowers.
Vigna marina
Dune bean
Dune bean (Vigna marina) is a scrambling salt-tolerant plant that simply loves the beach. Its scientific name marina refers to its preferred marine habitat. This plant's dense growth means that it is classed as minorly invasive in some coastal locations. However, in other locations this dense growth is appreciated, as it can stabilize loose sand.
Vigna unguiculata
Cowpea
Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) is an annual grain legume that is an important crop in many regions. The plant has been used as forage for animals and for cow feed. It can be short and bushy or grow as a long vine up to 2 m tall. The edible seeds and seed pods are very small and kidney-shaped.
Vigna vexillata
Zombi pea
An important food crop in some areas, zombi pea, or Vigna vexillata, is a perennial climbing plant that thrives in a variety of conditions. In addition to being cultivated for its tubers, it is also grown as a ground cover and green manure.
Vigna angularis
Adzuki bean
The popular red bean paste filling found in various food and pastries in some East Asian countries is made from the adzuki bean, an annual vine. Because of its bean's naturally sweet and nutty flavor, this plant is grown as an edible crop. Seeds are used as medicine in China to treat a variety of diseases.
Vigna radiata
Mung bean
Mung bean (Vigna radiata) is a plant in the legume family that is native to India and is mostly cultivated for culinary uses. It is considered a warm season crop and is both heat and drought-tolerant. Plant in early summer to harvest in fall.
Vigna minima
Cowpea
The cowpea plant is used to feed grazing cattle. It is cultivated for the versatile edible beans, also called black-eyed peas, used in soup, stews, etc., that are rich in protein, calories, minerals, and vitamins.
Vigna umbellata
Ricebean
Vigna umbellata (Thunb.) Ohwi and Ohashi, previously Phaseolus calcaratus, is a warm-season annual vine legume with yellow flowers and small edible beans. It is commonly called ricebean or rice bean. To date, it is little known, little researched and little exploited. It is regarded as a minor food and fodder crop and is often grown as intercrop or mixed crop with maize (Zea mays), sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) or cowpea (V. unguiculata), as well as a sole crop in the uplands, on a very limited area. Like the other Asiatic Vigna species, ricebean is a fairly short-lived warm-season annual. Grown mainly as a dried pulse, it is also important as a fodder, a green manure and a vegetable. Ricebean is most widely grown as an intercrop, particularly of maize, throughout Indo-China and extending into southern China, India, Nepal and Bangladesh. In the past it was widely grown as lowland crop on residual soil water after the harvest of long-season rice, but it has been displaced to a great extent where shorter duration rice varieties are grown. Ricebean grows well on a range of soils. It establishes rapidly and has the potential to produce large amounts of nutritious animal fodder and high quality grain.

Snail flower
Vigna caracalla
Snail flower
Named for the snail shell-like curls of its flowers, the Snail flower is grown in gardens but has naturalized in several areas, like California, where it is considered invasive. Snail flower's species name, "caracalla," honors Caracas, Venezuela, where it is found natively.
Yard long bean
Vigna unguiculata subsp. sesquipedalis
Yard long bean
The is a fascinating plant known for its incredibly long edible pods, which can reach lengths of over 1 meter. It is often cultivated for its culinary value, as the tender pods are delicious when cooked. Additionally, this plant is a great choice for gardeners as it attracts beneficial insects with its vibrant flowers. Its unique appearance and impressive pod length make it stand out among other plants in the garden.
Wondering cowpea
Vigna speciosa
Wondering cowpea
With a graceful stance, wondering cowpea flourishes in warm, sunny locales, showcasing delicate, spreading vines. Its vivid flowers not only add strokes of color but are also a prelude to the elongated pods it yields. These slender pods house seeds that renew the cycle of life, while the sturdy leaves capture the sun's energy, optimizing the plant's vitality in its preferred tropical to subtropical habitat.

Dracaena
Dracaena
Dracaena are popular house plants that are easy to grow. They can tolerate low-light conditions and require little watering. Their leaves range from variegated to dark green. Their characteristic traits include woody stems that grow slowly but offer a striking appearance for small spaces such as apartments or offices.
Ficus
Fig trees
Fig trees have been cultivated in many regions for their fruits, particularly the common fig, F. carica. Most of the species have edible fruits, although the common fig is the only one of commercial value. Fig trees are also important food sources for wildlife in the tropics, including monkeys, bats, and insects.
Rubus
Brambles
Brambles are members of the rose family, and there are hundreds of different types to be found throughout the European countryside. They have been culturally significant for centuries; Christian folklore stories hold that when the devil was thrown from heaven, he landed on a bramble bush. Their vigorous growth habit can tangle into native plants and take over.
Acer
Maples
The popular tree family known as maples change the color of their leaves in the fall. Many cultural traditions encourage people to watch the colors change, such as momijigari in Japan. Maples popular options for bonsai art. Alternately, their sap is used to create maple syrup.
Prunus
Prunus
Prunus is a genus of flowering fruit trees that includes almonds, cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, and apricots. These are often known as "stone fruits" because their pits are large seeds or "stones." When prunus trees are damaged, they exhibit "gummosis," a condition in which the tree's gum (similar to sap) is secreted to the bark to help heal external wounds.
Solanum
Nightshades
Nightshades is a large and diverse genus of plants, with more than 1500 different types worldwide. This genus incorporates both important staple food crops like tomato, potato, and eggplant, but also dangerous poisonous plants from the nightshade family. The name was coined by Pliny the Elder almost two thousand years ago.
Rosa
Roses
Most species of roses are shrubs or climbing plants that have showy flowers and sharp thorns. They are commonly cultivated for cut flowers or as ornamental plants in gardens due to their attractive appearance, pleasant fragrance, and cultural significance in many countries. The rose hips (fruits) can also be used in jams and teas.
Quercus
Oaks
Oaks are among the world's longest-lived trees, sometimes growing for over 1,000 years! The oldest known oak tree is in the southern United States and is over 1,500 years old. Oaks produce an exceedingly popular type of wood which is used to make different products, from furniture and flooring to wine barrels and even cosmetic creams.
