Fabaceae new ID from Hooghly 1/10/12 sk:

Attaching images of another herb, seems to be cultivated annual.
Species : UNKNOWN
Habit & Habitat : about 6.5 feet or more, slim without branches, very likely to be a cultivated species
Date & Place : 01-Oct-2012, Gobra (Hooghly)


Flowers remind of S. bispinosa


Yes, Sir, Flowers are very much like S. bispinosa and there are a number of posts in the group. Will check for spines.


There is no prickle like growth that can be seen in other efI posts of S. bispinosa plant, i have checked a number of individuals thoroughly.
I attach more flower pics.


I can see both yellow and mottled flowers. The standard is again broader than long. What about S. cannabina?


I also think this is Sesbania cannabina cultivar.


Attaching more images of this species, recorded this morning. It is cultivated, the owner appointed a daily labourer today in order to harvest the crop. I have been told (by the labourer) that this is DHONCHE plant and the plant is also used as a cattle feed (probably chopped and boiled). Uses of Sesbania can be seen at – http://www.lrrd.org/lrrd21/5/anit21067.htm and at – http://www.ars-grin.gov/cgi-bin/npgs/html/taxon.pl?33763#uses.

Sorry, it should be I think it should be Sesbania cannabina (Retz.) Pers. only based on the keys in Flora of China
