Clitoria Linnaeus. Butterfly Pea, Pigeonwings.

Key to Clitoria

A genus of about 60 species, of tropical and warm temperate regions of the New and Old World.

ID notes:Centrosema and Clitoria are unique among our legumes in having resupinate flowers, the pedicel twisted 180 degrees so that the large ‘standard’ is lowermost. They are often confused; see key and identification comments under Centrosema.
