If you’ve noticed the Latin name sounds a bit, well, feminine, you’re right. Clitoria by name, clitoris-shaped by nature. These flowers are named ‘clitoria’ because they are said to resemble a woman’s clitoris. Whilst the the resemblance ends with the shape it is nonetheless a conversation starter.
