Green Eyes

As well as yesterday’s Hovea, the rather similar looking Native Wisteria is also flowering in Perth’s Bold Park at present. They both have blue/purple pea type flowers, but they are quite easy to tell apart. Hovea is a straggly shrub with narrow leaves, while Native Wisteria is a climber with broad leaves. But the most obvious difference is that Native Wisteria has distinctive green “eyes”.
