Clitoria ternatea, L

Original illustration from Curtis's Botanical Magazine, published as plate 1542, 1st April 1813. Watercolour and pencil on paper. According to Curtis's Botanical Magazine this species is a native of the East Indies & of Cochin-China as well as Egypt. Apparently the seeds were first brought to Europe from Ternate, one of the Moluccan Islands. This specimen was communicated by Mr Anderson, from the collection of James Vere, Esq. at Kensington Gore, in July 1812.
