Copper Beauty Colutea
Photograph - Photography
Colutea x media a hybrid called "Copper Beauty" (leguninosae) . It is similar in looks to the Locust shrubs but the pea pods are infertile and only used ornamentally . Also known as Orange Bladder Senna! This was a fairly mature tree and was covered in these eye catching pea type flowers
The image was taken in the Cruikshank Botanic Gardens in Aberdeen, Scotland and is dedicated to my facebook friend Larry from Ohio who encouraged me to find out exactly what it was. Thank you my friend.
I love the super colours of the flowers, their shapes, foliage and their lovely, if barren, seedpods.
