Meet the Legume Family

Leguminacae family is the legume family, or pea family. If you look at pictures above you’ll see a sweet pea, a flower we all know fairly well. It’s unique in that it has “wing” petals that lean forward, and a central “keel” petal in the middle, which is shaped like a boat. These characteristics are unique to the pea family and as you look at other flowers, you will start to recognize the similarities in other flowers we sell like Genestra/Genista, Flowering Scotch Broom, Sweet Broom.
