Please find some pictures, recently found in Bangladesh and the picture has taken by a plant lover. I am seeking your help for proper identification.



We do not any species under this genus in BD. But Hooker stated 70 species in British India, except A. Glycyphyllos. Mostly from cold region including Nepal. 
To me its Indigofera


I am talking about Indigofera.


From  CHT and Chittagong 5 species 
Indigofera galegoides
Indigofera linnaei
Indigofera suffruticosa
Indigofera tinctoria
Indigofera zollingeriana


Appears close to Indigofera galegoides as per GBIF  Specimen Flora of China  POWO


To me, it is Indigofera galegoides
