Pea, Butterfly (Clitoria ternatea) plant, organic
Family: Legume (Fabaceae)
Hardy to zones 9 to 12
Native to Africa. Royal blue flowers occur on a tender and comely vine that can grow up to 15 feet. Excellent choice for hanging baskets. Flowers used as a harmless food dye. Our collection came originally from the island of Pemba in East Africa, where this plant is native. As a fodder plant in warm zones, Clitoria is highly esteemed. The plant is quick and easy to establish and makes a perennial, nitrogen fixing root. Although it is not tolerant of cold, the plant is quite tolerant of drought, saline soil, and soda soil. The foliage is palatable, high in nutrients and regrows quickly after it is browsed. Plant prefers part shade and warm soils. Space 2 feet apart
