"Irregular flowers are not radially symmetrical; that is, their petals or petal-like parts are not similar in size, shape or color. Usually these flowers have upper and lower parts that are called lips. Familiar irregular flowers are Violets, Orchids and Peas." — Lawrence Newcomb, Newcomb's Wildflower Guide
