Clitoria arborea, commonly known as the Butterfly Pea Tree or Mountain Clitoria, is a species of flowering plant in the family Fabaceae. It is native to tropical regions of Asia, including India, Sri Lanka, and parts of Southeast Asia.

The Butterfly Pea Tree is a woody vine or shrub that can reach heights of up to 6 meters (20 feet). It has slender, twining stems and dark green, pinnate leaves consisting of multiple leaflets. The flowers of Clitoria arborea are the most distinctive feature of the plant. They are large, showy, and resemble butterfly wings, which gives the plant its common name. The flowers are usually blue or lavender, although white and pink varieties also exist.

In addition to its ornamental value, Clitoria arborea has cultural and medicinal significance in many regions where it grows. The flowers are sometimes used to make herbal tea, which can be enjoyed hot or cold. The tea is known for its vivid blue color, which is derived from natural pigments called anthocyanins. In traditional medicine, various parts of the plant, including the leaves, flowers, and roots, are used to treat various ailments such as inflammation, fever, and digestive disorders.

The Butterfly Pea Tree is a relatively low-maintenance plant that thrives in well-drained soils and full to partial sunlight. It can be propagated from seeds or cuttings and is suitable for tropical and subtropical climates. In gardening, Clitoria arborea is often cultivated as an ornamental plant in parks, gardens, and as a decorative vine for arbors or trellises. It also attracts pollinators like butterflies and bees with its vibrant flowers.C
