Loc: Upper Siang distt., Arunachal Pradesh (ca 700 msl)

A different Tephrosia than what I have seen earlier.
I think ‘candida’ refers to the white coloured flowers here.
We have pulple coloured T.purpurea also.

Date: 23/10/2011
Place: Assam
Habit: shrub

I think Tephrosia candida.

I agree with Tephrosia candida
See the earlier pictures from thread

I hope this is Sesbania grandiflora of Fabaceae

this is not SESBANIA gandiflora
the flower and the seed pod is all wrong for s. grandiflora
look at this picture:

It is Tephrosia candida, I think.

Tephrosia candida from me too.
