Multiple Torpedo (Spider Flower) / ตอร์ปิโด ตูม ตูม ตูม (ผักเสี้ยนฝรั่ง)

จะบอกว่า ไม่รู้มันชื่ออะหยั่ง หายังไงก็ไม่เจอ ถามใครก็ไม่รู้




ไม่งั้นมันจะกลายเป็นดอกตอร์ปิโด ไป :P


Very thank songglod for it's name :)


(spider flower / Cleome)

Cleome is a genus of flowering plants in the family Cleomaceae. Previously it had been placed in family Capparaceae, until DNA studies found the Cleomaceae genera to be more closely related to Brassicaceae than Capparaceae. The APG II system[1] allows for Cleome and the other members of Cleomaceae to be included in Brassicaceae.


The genus sensu stricto includes about 170 species of herbaceous annual or perennial plants and shrubs.[2] The genus has a subcosmopolitan distribution throughout the tropical and warm temperate regions of the world.[2] However a recent DNA study failed to separate Cleome, Podandrogyne and Polanisia from each other, so some taxonomists have abandoned the last two of these genera, treating them as part of Cleome sensu lato; in this case Cleome contains about 275 species, the vast majority of the Cleomaceae.


As a genus it contains species which show a developmental progression from C3 photosynthesis to C4 photosynthesis. This combined with its being a Brassicaceae (and therefore closely related to the model plant species Arabidopsis thaliana) make it an ideal genus in which to study how C4 photosynthesis occurs and how it evolved. Morphological differences that demonstrate the transition from C3 to C4 include C3 species having more veins and larger bundle sheath cells. There are also proteins present in species such as Cleome gynandra which are needed for C4 photosynthesis.
