The tree wisteria (SA Tree List No. 222) flower has the typical shape of flowers of plants in the Fabaceae, pod-bearing or legume family. This is the third biggest land plant family on earth, including such economically important plants as beans and peas. Only the Orchidaceae and Asteraceae families contain more plant species.
The flower structure always has five fused sepals and five free petals. The flowers are generally hermaphroditic, meaning that both male and female reproductive structures are present in each flower. These plants are usually pollinated by insects. Some Fabaceae species have actinomorphic or radially symmetric flowers, like the bauhinias. Most are, however, asymmetric (zygomorphic) like pea-flowers and this one, a Bolusanthus speciosus flower (Wikipedia).
