Clicks of Flora in Vellalore

These are some random pictures of flowers in Vellalore.

Clitoria is a genus of flowering plants that are insect pollinated. 

This genus was named after the human female clitoris, for the flowers bear a resemblance to female genitals

Originally the first described species of the genus was given the name Flos clitoridis ternatensibus in 1678 by Rumpf, a German-born botanist employed by the Dutch East India Company. It was regarded as appropriately named by Johann Philipp Breyne in 1747. Many vernacular names of these flowers in different languages are similarly based on references to a woman's sexual organ.

There were controversies in the past among botanists regarding the good taste of the naming of the genus. The analogy drew sharp criticism from botanists like James Edward Smith in 1807, Amos Eaton in 1817, Michel Étienne Descourtilz in 1826 and Eaton and Wright in 1840. Some less explicit alternatives, like Vexillaria (Eaton 1817) and Nauchea (Descourtilz 1826), were proposed, but they didn't prosper and the name Clitoria has survived to this day.

 These plants are very not any endangered or rare species. It is very common, but I thought: "What the hell. Let us post it."  



I don't know what these flowers are, but are generally called Sangu Malli.
