I posted a picture of what I mistakenly thought was a white laburnum a while back, and am amazed how many people have since turned up here after searching on that term.
It makes me think that other people may find this picture of male and female kiwi blossoms useful:
When I was trying to find out which of the kiwi vines was male and which female, I found lots of descriptions, but don’t remember seeing a picture that showed the two types of flower alongside each other.
In the photo, the male kiwi flowers are on the left. We had hundreds of blossoms on that vine this year. There were only a score of female kiwi flowers (the ones with the white centres on the right) on one of the other vines, and they opened a bit later. Now all the flowers have been destroyed by torrential rain, but at least some of the females seem to have set fruit.
Incidentally, I’m beginning to think the tag line for this blog should be changed to mostly pedantry and plants as I don’t seem to have had a poetic thought in weeks. Perhaps I should get the old notebooks out again and see what I can find to revise.
