Are there any Indigofera sp. which have white flowers?
The plant was minute, size of flowers and leaves comparable to that of Indigofera linnaei.
Makalidurga hills (outside Bangalore)
the prostrate herb was growing in a dry area with mostly sand and gravel.
Only one flower in bloom.
31st August 2014


This is the white-flowered form of Indigofera linnaei.


How is it classified sir? A variety?


Nope, its just a (colour) variation.

Photographed last week @ Sabarkantha, Gujarat.
Positive pointers:
1. leaf has 5 leaflets. mucro +;
2. Very small flowers (4-5mm), red / pink.
4. Raceme pedunculated, 15-20 flowered.
3. Plant hairy overall.
4. Flowering and fruiting season match excellent.
5. Geographical location: near perfect as species described from Khedbrahma, Sabarkantha barely 50kms away. [Originally described from adjoining area of Madhya Pradesh]
Variations / Deviations are.
1. Length of raceme is shorter than leaf length; It’s possible as inflorescence can be 2-15 cms.
2. Leaflets not strictly opposite; I suspect not of much significance.
3, Fruit slightly torulose but classical constrictions not seen; Again possible as fruit can be 1 to 3 seeded. Fruit size match is good.
4. Raceme described as 30-50 flowered.

Kindly assist with this plant ID. Clicked on 25 July 2018 in Pali, Rajasthan. Looks like indigofera, but not sure.

Thanks, …, Pl. check comparative images at 

Indigofera hendecaphylla ?? Elevation ??

Elevation of the location is 221 m. The plant was a creeper. It does look a bit like Indigofera hendecaphylla.
