Pink and Furry

By ChiliMan
Hey, all Smile

Now at the beginning of June I felt kinda guilty ‘cos my A430 had been neglected for so long. So I took it out for walkies.

Here’s something I took at HortPark. I have no idea what this is but when I saw it I was like, “Nooo…”.

SO pretty, huh??

If anyone happens to know the ID of this, would you please let me know? Ta.

I'm afraid I have no idea... but it looks like a member of the pea family.

It's a beauty, Andrew, and I echo Ann's words, it is definitely a member of the pea family, but dodn't know the name (yet!). Carol

Yes!! That's what I think too...the pea family! The moment I saw it I thought Crotalaria. The only Crotalaria I know has yellow flowers. Thanks, you two. I'm gonna go searching along Crotalarian lines.

And Evelen...oh my...long time no see! Smile

Whatever you decide it is a well captured 'pea?'

Well Catpured indeed, and I too , think it will be some sort of pea flower!

Very nice, and probably of the fabaceae family, but I haven't had any luck IDing it.

A fabulous close up Andrew, the detail and colours are exceedingly good. Perhaps epz's botanical expert "EAS" Ann, will be able to identify it for you

Likewise, I have no idea what it is but it is beautiful. You have captured it to perfection - and I have to say it also reminds me somewhat of a Lupin, which grow very well over here in the UK!

Firstly, love this beautiful floral image. Secondly, reminds me strongly of a shrub in my own garden, Andrew, which is an Indigofera (Leguminosae). Don't tell the shrub in my garden but the book states it to be a tropical/sub tropical shrub!! When I think of the layers of snow and hard frost mine faces each winter .... !!
