What about Stylosanthes species?
Can’t see the fringed crest here…..


Agree with … This looks like the Carribean Stylo [Stylosanthes hamatus] to me.


A better eye catches the characters easily. 
I erred again, not only the fringed crest, here the leaves are tri-foliate. Sorry for the mistake.
I think I misled myself because of the leaf shape, I guess. Thank you for correcting me.
