The rambling or climbing feature of Clitoria ternatea, sometimes called the bluebellvine, is divulged by its elongated stem-tips showing long, curving internodes between developing leaves.
The compound leaves are imparipinnate, bearing terminal leaflets as well as the paired leaflets, all folding in along their midribs.
The flower is used in southeast Asia as a natural food colourant, for instance in rice.
In accordance with the doctrine of signatures, the age-old belief that plants resemble body parts they are suited to treat, this plant has been ascribed properties affecting female libido, due to its similar appearance to the female reproductive organ (Leistner, (Ed.), 2000; Blundell, 1987; iNaturalist; Wikipedia).
