Plant with yellow-green needle-like leaves and bright yellow pea-like flowersView Full Resolution

This photo shows a closeup of the rooibos plant, Aspalathus linearis. The leaves are extremely narrow and needle-like, almost making this plant appear like some coniferous plants, but the pea-like flowers betray its membership in Fabaceae, the legume, pea, or bean family.
