The White Aparajita Flower, also known as Clitoria ternatea 'Alba,' is a cultivar of the more commonly known Butterfly Pea plant (Clitoria ternatea). It is a member of the Fabaceae family and shares many characteristics with the standard Clitoria ternatea, but it stands out due to its beautiful white flowers. Here is a description of the White Aparajita Flower plant:

  1. Leaves: The plant has lush green, compound leaves with three leaflets arranged alternately along the stems. The leaves are lance-shaped and add to the plant's overall attractiveness.

  2. Flowers: The most distinctive feature of the White Aparajita Flower plant is its stunning white flowers. These flowers are trumpet-shaped and have five petals. The flowers are approximately 2-3 inches in diameter and bloom during the warm months.

  3. Climbing habit: Like the standard Clitoria ternatea, the White Aparajita Flower plant is a climbing or trailing vine. It can grow up to 2-3 meters (6-10 feet) tall when provided with suitable support. This makes it an excellent choice for trellises, fences, or pergolas in gardens.

  4. Roots: The plant has a robust root system, enabling it to anchor itself and climb effectively.

  5. Fruit: After the flowers fade, the plant produces small, slender pods containing seeds. These pods are not usually the primary ornamental feature of the plant.

  • Antioxidant properties: The presence of flavonoids in the flowers and leaves may contribute to their antioxidant effects, helping to combat oxidative stress and cellular damage.

  • Anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects: Extracts from the plant have been traditionally used to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.
