Modified Leaf of a Plant: ‘MO’OMOMI ‘OHAI (Sesbania Tomentosa)

The ‘MO’OMOMI ‘OHAI (part of the pea family) has modified leaves in the form of tendrils. Tendrils are thin, threadlike structures that will “climb” and attach to a plant or a stationary structure. By attaching to another plant or structure, tendrils assist the pea plants by giving them support and stability.
