Please check Crotalaria spectabilis.


may be Crotalaria linefolia


Looks similar to C.juncea also.


For me this looks like sun hemp (Crotalaria juncea). 

You may have to check the  fruits and seeds as well  for confirmation.

Stem is not clearly visible but shape and width of leaves suggests C. juncea.


Almost looks like C. juncea L. It would be better to have a look at the closeup of the leaf, to get a more clear picture.

identification261110sn1: earlier it was id. as crotalaria, but the species was not identified for lack of other details I am mailing the photo of its pods this time along with the flower.
Date/time:nov10
Location:above lonavala, 3000ft.above sealevel
Habitat:wild
Plant habit-tree/shrub/climber/herb: tiny, may be herb
Height/length: not more than 6″
Leave type/shape/size
Fruits-type/shape/size/seeds pods attached
Other information-fragrance/pollinator uses etc.yellow flower

– may be Crotalaria juncea, but the habit makes some confusion. I think C. juncea is an erect plant and in the picture it does not seem to be erect. You better refer the revision on genus Crotalaria by Dr. A. A. Ansari for the confirmation.

-Pods give clue for this to be Crotalaria spectabilis?  


Pods are closer to images at Crotalaria juncea L.

Crotalaria juncea





Fabaceae-Faboideae (Papilionaceae) Week :: DV-30MAR11-0743 :: Crotalaria at Coorg: This Crotalaria is often found planted as an ornamental.
Place: in a resort garden (about 3705 ft asl) at Coorg
Time: Mar 30, 2011 at 7.43 am
Habit: erect herb
Habitat: garden.
Plant height: about 1m (possibly grows to a full height of 2m … will post separately full-grown at another place)
Flower size: about 25mm long, appears pale, thin like paper. The calyx is worth noting.

It looks like Crotalaria juncea to me.


Many thanks … for the ID; fits description put at FOI … http://www.flowersofindia.in/catalog/slides/Sunn%20Hemp.html


Yes even to me Crotalaria juncea, host plant for many species of butterfly..


On closer examination of the stem it looks tetragonous whereas in C. juncea it is terete.
In view of the above kindly consider C. leptostachya Benth.


Thanks …. To me, the stems in the pictures look like striated (with longitudinal ridges), a feature also seen in C. juncea.
But let’s wait for more comments.
Thanks …, for the FOI link. But I fear the picture in this link- especially the std. petal- looks close to that of C. spectabilis. But, I may be wrong…
Pl also check this link for C. juncea: http://www.hear.org/starr/images/image/?q=090814-4352&o=plants
