Pea flowers


There are pea flowers of all sizes and shapes in the Australian bush.  Here are a few photographed on the way home.

  1. mmm ... damn those botanists ... if they are different shapes, different sizes, and different colours, why are they not different classifications!

    See that purple one looks quite different from the other two ...

  2. Oh but they do have different classifications but I find it so hard to tell the difference between the different types that I lump them all into the category "pea flowers" for fear of getting them wrong.

  3. Stunning. The yellow pea flower really stands out against the foliage.

  4. The peas in the middle are more familiar to me.

  6. Love the vivid yellow of the pea flower especially, but they're all pretty in their own unique way.

  8. What a wonderful series this is! The yellow and brown flowers are gorgeous! As well as the light purple ones on the next post.

  9. The top is probably a Gompholobium sp. They tend to be a pure yellow.
    The next I call 'Egg and Bacon' is probably a Daviesia or Pultanaea.
    The purple one could be a Hardenbergia sp. or a Hovea sp.
    You would have to look under FABACEAE family in a local botanical field guide to check species.
