Sharing pics of Sesbania sesban
This small size tree shot from a field in village Sodhapur. I think cultivated on little farm house in that field similar to Sesbania sesban except flower colors.
may be a cutivar with different color
pls validate


Flower size??. Sesbania grandiflora also looks similar but has flowers longer than 6 cm as against less than 3 cm long in Sesbania sesban.


About 2 cm Sir. S grandiflora is different Sir I have uploaded that earlier


I think it is Sesbania sesban var. bicolor (Wight & Arn.) F.W.Andrews as per images herein.


I attach herewith the specimens of Sesbania sesban var. bicolor (Wight & Arn.) F.W.Andrews

It was observed in Palladam, Tirupur Dist, Tamilnadu on 19-07-15
The unopened flowers look like purplish black. Calyx and standard are purplish black, wings and keel partly purplish black or red; corolla standard callus blunt at apex.
The other characters appear to be of that of Yellow flower Sesbania sesban.
