Nice picture, greetings from germany!
Nicely found, are these the Sturt desert pea?
Yes, and it is abundant in this area.
Though, is not realy in the Sturt desert.
Hi ! It is possible to eat and make it a salad? It is not poisonous?
Australian Aborigines eat the roasted seeds, or make cakes by grinding the seeds and then baking them. However, the seeds contain trypsin inhibitors. Because trypsin is an essential enzyme which breaks down proteins during digestion, these seeds may not be an ideal source of nourishment.
Swainsona formosa was adopted as the South Australian floral emblem in 1961, and is an iconic flower in Australia. Its flowers are used for decoration by Australian Aborigines, and it appears in both traditional and more modern artwork. It is often photographed and has featured in prose and verse, and appears in some Aboriginal legends.
