Can be C. berteroana but need full information on vegetative parts to
be sure. Regards, Shrikant

Dear Shrikant ji,
This herb was around 1.5m in height with branches. Stem was slightly brownish & covered with hairs, Leaves alternate (approx 4 to 7cm), with very small petiole hardly few mm, wedge shaped.

In Crotalaria it is necessary to note if leaves are simple or
trifoliolate and the number of seeds in the pod. Your plant seems to
be simple leaved, a shrub silky allover and with flowers in panicles.
It should have had a 2 seeded pod to be C. berteroana, which seems to
be the likely ID. Regards, Shrikant
