The inch-wide flowers have slightly ruffled petals and 10 long, red protruding stamens as accents (except the pure yellow form).

As the inflorescence elongates, it produces new flowers at the top 1/3, and promptly sheds the lower old flowers.

The pods form quickly at the bottom of the inflorescence, and the flower buds open a few at a time, so that buds, flowers, and seed pods appear simultaneously.

The fruits are legumes looking very much like pea pods, but they are poisonous. As they mature they turn hard and brown and when ripe they split open noisily releasing the brown beans.
