The kittel flower (Clitoria ternatea) white 10 seeds

2,50

The kittel flower (Clitoria ternatea) is an herbaceous plant that climbs up to 6 m high with thin, winding stems. The leaves are alternately placed, 6-17 cm long, oddly pinnate with five or seven elliptical, 2-7 x 1-4 cm, oval to short-lanceolate, obtuse, short-stalked partial leaves.

The flowers are usually solitary in the leaf axils. At the base of the flower are three, ovoid 0.5-1 cm long bracts. The calyx is 1.5-2.5 cm long and fused halfway. The flowers consist of a 3.5-5 x 2.5-4 cm, blue, violet or rarely white petal with a white-edged yellow spot in the center. This petal forms an oval border, also around the upper, four remaining, much smaller petals. These smaller petals are slightly curled, the two outer ones are half as long as the flower and two inner ones are a quarter as long as the flower. The name kittel flower was given to the plant because, with imagination, it is reminiscent of a vulva with the clitoris protruding from it. The fruits are 5-12 cm long, about 1 cm wide, slightly hairy, green pods that contain six to 10 seeds.
