Photographed at my farm at Shahapur yesterday - Clitoria biflora [C.annua] the Bombay Bean is an annual erect herb.
[The Butterfly Bean, Clitoria ternatea is a climber].
Quoting from Isaac Kehimkar's 'Common Indian Wild Flowers' [a B.N.H.S. publication] - "the common name is derived from its being endemic to the erstwhile Bombay Presidency".
