Common name: Butterfly Pea, Aparajita अपराजिता (Hindi, Manipuri), சங்கு கன்னிக்கொடி Kannikkodi (Tamil), Sangu pushpam (Malayalam), Shankha Pushpa शंख पुष्प (Konkani, Marathi)
Botanical name: Clitoria ternatea Family: Fabaceae (pea family)
Introduced from the East Indies in 1739, this wonderful twining plant generously bears quite large flowers (about 2" across) which are a beautiful shade of vivid cobalt
blue with a white throat. The flowers are presented upside down - the "keel" petal appears on the top rather than the underside. A native of subtropical America and Asia, the butterfly pea is beautiful. A vine that can climb to 9 feet in a hot summer. The flowers are produced in late summer, deep blue with a yellow to white pattern in the center of the lower petal. A member of the pea family, elongated peas are produced and seeds can be collected for sowing the following year. The botanical name comes from the resemblance to intimate parts of the human anatomy.

INFORMATION ABOUT DAHLIA FLOWERS...

If ever there was a flower that knew the meaning of variety, it is the Dahlia. While it's colors are limited to the warm ranges of red, orange, yellow, pink and white, it's flowers come in a dizzying array of shapes and sizes. Dahlias are grouped into 6 size categories:

* Giant - more than 10 inches in diameter
* Large - 8-10 inches in diameter
* Medium - 6-8 inches in diameter
* Small - 4-6 inches in diameter
* Miniature - 2-4 inches in diameter
* Mignon - Less than 2 inches in diameter

On top of that, they are grouped into 11 bloom categories. These include:

* Decorative
* Cactus
* Fimbriated
* Ball
* Waterlily
* Anemone
* Collarette
* Orchid
* Peony
* Single
* Novelty

Each variation of the dahlia petal is a beauty. Their petals can be spiky, wispy, round thin or a half dozen other variations. Even the color ranges from one solid color to a painted mixture of two or three colors.

Dahlias like well, drain, humus rich soil. They also like full light. While dahlias are not cold hardy, they do benefit from being grown in a cooler climate with plenty of rain fall.

Dahlias bloom from mid summer all the way up to frost. Many times their displayed will become more spectacular as the weather cools. Dahlias produce a better display if they are properly deadheaded and pinched.

Dahlias are commonly grown as an annual but they can be grown as a perennial if their tubers are dug up shortly after the first frost. To dig up a dahlia properly, simply dig the frost blackened plant out of the ground. Brush (not wash) as much soil off as possible and then cut the stems back to about 6 inches. Set them out in a cool dry place to dry for a day or two. Basements or garages are ideal for this. After they have dried out a bit, dust them with a bit of fungicide and pack them away. Packing them in vermiculite or sand will help to ensure that the tuber will not be affected by fungal infestations.

Dahlias are easily propagated by division. Simply replant the tubers and wait until the growth reaches between a half inch to a full inch. Dig the plant back up and divide the clump into a few pieces. Each new clump needs to have a shoot on it.

If you haven't grown dahlias before, then this summer I would highly recommend that you give them a try. The variety and vividness of the dahlia flower is difficult to find in any other flower.
