  1. Hi Christine, what I understand the picture shown on the right side/Species Identified "The Butterfly Pea" is the picture of yard long bean flower (Vigna unguiculata subsp. sesquipedalis) which is significantly different with the flower of Butterfly Pea/Blue Pea, Clitoria ternatea.

''Clitoria ternatea'', common names including butterfly-pea, blue-pea, and cordofan-pea, is a plant species belonging to the Fabaceae family. The flowers of this vine have the shape of human female genitals, hence the Latin name of the genus ''"Clitoria"'', from "clitoris".

Similar species: Fabales
