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
