Genus: Jeffersonia

This fine light blue purple flowers bloom in April and May. They are native from Manchuria and Korea. From the same genus is Jeffersonia diphylla, native plant of North America.
Both are poisonous plants and are used in medicine (stomach pains, bringing down fever)
These flowers are named after Thomas Jefferson, third president of the Unitated States.
I haven't found much informations on this flower. The picture has been taken in the Botanical Garden of Berne.

Bonjour Anne,
A beautiful species of Jeffersonia taken in superb lighting that shows the flowers in a fine pattern of light and shade that helps to emphasise their features. The sharpness, natural colours and contrasting OOF natural image add to the beauty of this image.
Merci et bonne soirée,

Hello Anne,
Lovely flowers with superb colours and very good sharpness.
Great composition. Outstanding colours.

Ciao Anne,
premesso che mi piace moltissimo il tuo stile compositivo in qualsiasi genere di fotografia che presenti, trovo sempre superlative quelle che hanno come soggetto i fiori, indubbiamente i fiori permettono un approccio riflessivo e non si hanno pressioni temporali, ma tu riesci quasi sempre a trovare quel tocco che fa la differenza fra una fotografia piacevole e bella ed una che ti cattura profondamente.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona serata
Con amicizia Maurizio

Hy Anne
