Chamaecrista rotundifolia (Roundleaf Sensitive Pea) (Fabaceae)

Chamaecrista rotundifolia (Roundleaf Sensitive Pea)

Urban fields of FNQ are crawling with this pretty non-native legume herb. The bi-lobed leaves are very characteristic and plants are prostrate.

About David Tng

I am David Tng, a hedonistic botanizer who pursues plants with a fervour. I chase the opportunity to delve into various aspects of the study of plants. I have spent untold hours staring at mosses and allied plants, taking picture of pollen, culturing orchids in clean cabinets, counting tree rings, monitoring plant flowering times, etc. I am currently engrossed in the study of plant ecology (a grand excuse to see 'anything I can). Sometimes I think of myself as a shadow taxonomist, a sentimental ecologist, and a spiritual environmentalist - but at the very root of it all, a "plant whisperer"!
