Unique flower display! Dorothy Rose flowers are quite distinctive as each one has several blooms set inside one another. These rose-pink flowers are held well above blue-gray foliage on dark stems that add to the appeal. Granny’s Bonnets have been around for centuries, but this lovely lady was introduced at Chelsea Gardens in 1999. Makes an excellent plant.
Clitoria ternatea or Butterfly pea of Ayurveda is a very common perennial vine that is native to tropical and equatorial regions but is now found even in other parts of the world. In this post, we will talk about butterfly pea uses, benefits and side effects.
This creeper is herbaceous and requires very little care because of which it is one of the plants suitable for re-vegetation.
It has ornamental value because of its oblong green leaves that offer dense green cover that has a butterfly pea flower interspersed, making these flowers look striking.
The Clitoria ternatea plant has attractive deep blue colored flowers with unequal sized petals assembled in a shape that are similar to a woman’s clitoris. The pale-yellow color radiating upwards from the base of the flower further accentuates the resemblance.
That is the reason its scientific name is Clitoria ternatea. Some of the plants, however, may have white colored plants. External petal is larger, and it also has veins that branch towards the external tip of the flower.
The stem of this plant is like any other creeper. Leaves are pinnately compounded, i.e., there is a petiole that extends in rachis. This rachis ends in leaf and has leaves on either side.
Basically, this plant is a relative of the common pea plant. Therefore, it is a leguminous plant enjoying a symbiotic relationship with a bacterium.
The fruit is in the form of pod, and they are edible but only when the seeds are unripe. The pods are long and resemble those of common peas though these pods are a bit compressed.
Since no part of this plant is poisonous, all parts are used either in cooking or in medicines. It is used in Malaysian, Thai, and Burmese cooking. Food colour is also extracted from it.
Ayurveda is not the only medicine branch that has identified the medicinal properties of butterfly pea plant. Chinese have also used this plant in medical preparations for curing ailments afflicting reproductive organs. The plant has also been used in Unani medicines.
Butterfly pea side effects
Excessive drinking is not suggested as some of its dynamic ingredients could cause harmful impacts over the long haul. Pregnant ladies and breastfeeding moms should maintain a strategic distance from its utilization.

Guavas are tropical trees originating in Central America.
Their fruits are oval in shape with light green or yellow skin and contain edible seeds. What’s more, guava leaves are used as an herbal tea and the leaf extract as a supplement.
Guava fruits are amazingly rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. This remarkable nutrient content gives them many health benefits.
Here are 8 evidence-based health benefits of guava fruits and leaves
Some evidence suggests that guava can improve blood sugar control.
Several test-tube and animal studies found that guava leaf extract improved blood sugar levels, long-term blood sugar control.
This is good news for people with diabetes or those at risk.
A few studies involving humans have also shown impressive results.
One study in 19 people noted that drinking guava leaf tea lowered blood sugar levels after a meal. The effects lasted up to two hours
Another study in 20 people with type 2 diabetes found that drinking guava leaf tea reduced blood sugar levels after a meal by more than 10%
Guavas may help boost heart health in a number of ways.
Many scientists believe that the high levels of antioxidants and vitamins in guava leaves may help protect your heart from damage by free radicals
The higher levels of potassium and soluble fiber in guavas are also thought to contribute to improved heart health.
Additionally, guava leaf extract has been linked to lower blood pressure, a decrease in “bad” LDL cholesterol, and a rise in “good” HDL cholesterol
Since high blood pressure and high levels of LDL cholesterol are linked to higher risks of heart disease and stroke, taking guava leaf extract could lead to valuable benefits.
What’s more, the fruit may have benefits for heart health as well.

Types of Deficiencies and How to Solve Them
Plants show us what they’re hungry for based on their appearance. Yellow leaves and stunted growth are a couple ways our plants try to tell us what they need. Take a look at these signs of deficiency to see what your plant is craving.

The spekboom / Portulacaria Afra plant (otherwise know as ‘elephant food’) from Kirstenbosch Botanical gardens in Cape Town, South Africa. If you have not been to Kirstenbosch – put it on your to do list, it is beautiful. The spekboom is a succulent plant with amazing properties, I will write you a quick summary on the plant. I can tell you it is probably the best plant used as a carbon trap for carbon storage against global warming. Before you think this sounds boring, it really is an amazing plant. I wish everyone could have their little ‘green’ green plant. If you translated it directly from Afrikaans to English it would be named Bacon tree/bush.
Firstly you would ask, what is carbon storage again? Carbon capturing and storage is where carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are captured and the carbon dioxide is prevented from entering the atmosphere – in other words less pollution. Pretty awesome. The Spekboom is one of the best plants to do this. There are big plans and projects already in progress to use these plants as carbon traps.
Where does the Spekboom grow naturally? Apparently it might have been found in Mexico and Spain as well, but has been wiped out mostly. It is mainly found in the Eastern cape of South Africa where it has become known as “Elephant food.” The Eastern Cape is well known for its elephants and they love to eat the Spekboom. The Addo Elephant Park is filled with Spekboom. There is a big movement to restore the natural habitat of the plant in especially the Eastern Cape.
What is significant (or rather extremely special) about this plant?
1. Firstly it grows in incredible circumstances. It grows well in dry barren ground, but also grows just as well in flower beds that get watered regularly. Back in the day livestock farmers used it as fences, it was easy to plant, the livestock could eat the leaves from the inside of the fence, while on the outside it could grow thick and strong. You can plant a few sticks apart, sticking it in the ground and water regularly – it will soon shoot roots and start to grow. You can also leave the tip of a branch in water until it shoots roots and then plant the cutting. As mentioned the plant grows well in dry and wet conditions, it has the ability to switch its photosynthetic mechanism. Meaning it can be like a rain forest plant in wet conditions or a desert cactus in dry conditions.
2. It is edible. As mentioned the plant is known as “Elephant food.” Animals in the wild eat the plant, it is wonderful food as it is an evergreen and provides food during the cold winter months when food is scarce. Humans can also consume the leaves of the Spekboom. Apparently (I have not tried it yet) the leaves taste a bit sour, a lemon-tipe taste, perfect to use in salads they say.
3. It also stimulates the production of milk. This has been confirmed by Xhosa tradition where the grandmother would eat the plant leaves in order to be able to provide milk for her newborn grandchild when the young mother had to help gather wood and provide for the home. Dairy farmers have also confirmed that the milk production of their milk cows’ has sky rocketed when grazing in spekboom fields.
4. The plant contains a good amount manganese, cobalt and magnesium. It contains iodine and selenium in large quantities as well.
5. Finally, but mostly, carbon storage. The plant absorb carbon dioxide, but does not release it into the air again. (I will post my references at the bottom of the page if you would like to read up more on the science part). The carbon dioxide and plant matter end up in the ground, the plant is not flammable and cannot burn. As we all know there is a massive threat of global warming, the reason for that is CO2 gasses building up. The spekboom is one of the very few natural plants identified to be used as a carbon trap to help relieve this problem in the future. They are planting fields and fields as carbon trap projects.
The growth of the plant:
it is an evergreen succulent. It can reach 2.5m – 4.5m in height (most resources seems to say 2.5m high). The plant can live up to 200 years. It flowers in spring or early summer after good rains – I have not seen the flower myself before, hoping our plant will flower as it currently is more of a house plant, will definitely be posting a photo should it decide to flower. They say the flowers give delicious honey as well.
Having read that the carbon dioxide gets stored in the soil by the plant made me wonder about the soil quality. I found a resource stating that the Spekboom actually improves soil quality. That it stimulates the return of biodiversity in the area. The reason for this is the soil-binding and shading nature of the plant. It also reduces erosion.
Imagine this plant growing next to all high ways and in parks (or in pots if it must) in industrial areas where pollution is a massive problem. The best solution for clean air, completely natural, why not!? Still NO reason to pollute!
Gardening is a treat, growing plants with meaning and amazing functions is extremely rewarding.🤩🤩✍️
