Caragana is a genus of about 80 species of flowering plants in the family Fabaceae, native to Asia and eastern Europe. [more]
Hedysarum (Sweetvetch) is a genus of the botanical family Fabaceae, consisting of about 309 species of annual or perennial herbs in Asia, Europe, North Africa, and North America. [more]
Hedyscepe canterburyana, the Big Mountain Palm or Umbrella Palm, is the sole species in the genus Hedescepe of the family. It is endemic to Lord Howe Island, Australia and is threatened by habitat loss. It is a solitary palm with a distinct crownshaft, and bears unisexual flowers of both sexes. With the Rhopalostylis palms of Norfolk Island and New Zealand it forms the botanic subtribe Rhopalostylidinae. If differs from Rhopalostylis in minor floral details including having more than six stamens, and in being protandrous rather than protogynous. The two genera were formerly included in Archontophoenicinae until a revision in (Dransfield, Uhl et al., 2005). [more]
Sainfoins (Onobrychis) are Eurasian perennial herbs that have pale pink flowers and curved pods. O. viciifolia is naturalized in the British Isles and North America grasslands on calcareous soils. The Flora Europaea lists 23 species of Onobrychis. [more]
