Indigofera …???

I checked all the species listed in the Checklist of Nepal.
To me Indigofera atropurpurea Hornem. appears to be the best choice among them.
Flora of China says Leaves ca. 2.4 cm, (7-)11-19(or 21)-foliolate”
Pl. check.

I think Indigofera hebepetala Baker is a better choice.

I guess you are right … !
