Tephrosia uniflora  Pers.

nice. natural occurrence or planted?

It could be either. Most of the flora in this park was planted (restored), after meticulously clearing the non-native Prosopis juliflora – this was about more than a decade ago.

Ok, thanks. 

This looks like Tephrosia apollinea … flowers coming on a peduncle, goes against T. uniflora.
I am looking for details of elusive T. uniflora subsp. uniflora … Please help in this regard.

Thanks … I went by Flora of that park, without much checking. Will correct the ID if any mistake.

Tephrosia apollinea was a very common plant in Oman.
I have seen and photographed around Muscat a number of times.

Thanks very much …
Do you agree with … thought that my posted plant is Tephrosia apollinea ?

It does look similar.
