Description

A set of four observations as follow-up to a question about ID of https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/57845999 (same plant as this one). The plants are in a stand of a dozen or more at the edge of salt marsh. This observation and the 4th are about 20m apart, and all plants are about the same height (2m+) and stem diameter, so they are likely to be all one species, but there is enough variation in pods and flowers that I wanted to show variants. Sesbania virgata always has upturned curved pods, but in the past I have only seen it with yellow flowers. This particular plant had no flowers. just curved pods, but the other three did have flowers. The four observations are:https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/60113578
