Faboideae (Papilionaceae) Fortnight
pea family
Indigofera ¿ suffruticosa ?
Dear friends,
Please validate this ID; my earlier post was not conclusive. There are a few posts related to I. suffruticosa in group's archive. Couple of Pravin Kawale ji's posts seem to have plants very similar to what I am posting. 

The posted plant is about a metre high bushy shrub, and is as wide, growing near creek, on large bund of paddy field. I do not recollect dimensions of pods, the flower must be 3 - 4 mm across.

Dinesh ji,

By any chance this plant could be Indigofera astragalina

Thanks Garg ji.
Many thanks Krishnaraj ji. Will check the possibilities of Indigofera longeracemosa OR Indigofera tinctoria.


Muthu ji, the pods of posted plant and that of I. astragalina look different ...

I second Krishnaraj ji's views.
It is not I. suffruticosa nor I. astragalina.

Thanks to Krishnaraj ji for his suggested ID and to Vijayasankar ji; this ID is resolved to Indigofera tinctoria based on discussion in a recent post of Alka ji.
