nope. as you can see, there is only one row of leaves from the stem. not like in the link. not spread on different rows of leaves. just one. and it has very fine delicate spikes under the leaves.
Sad

i got 6-7 royal poincianas and they look different. really. and when it came out of the soil, didn't look like the poincianas, long like the seed.
definitely different.

This one may be sensitive plant which is in the mimosa family.

This is the place where I ordered my seeds. Whatever yours is it looks as if it is in the same family.

If the leaves close when you touch them it is for sure a sensitive plant as my darling wife said.

This one makes me think Sesbania,
there are many species, so I couldn't hazard a guess beyond that.
Some grow to full tree size, others are small and shrubby.
Their flowers are like pea blossoms,
and the seed pods of some types give them the common name "Rattle Box".

It really is just a guess. Wink

It certainly looks a lot like one of the Sesbania Zuzu but do they have the fine thorns under the leaves? I can't remember offhand. Confused

Ya, that's something that I'm not so sure about, either.
The S. punicia that I grow does not have that characteristic . . .
but I really don't know about those that may grow in other parts of the world.

I still think it is a sensitive plant, they have thorns. Believe me, I found this out the hard way. Maybe it will flower and Colin can post us a pic.

I think you're right Sharon. I certainly remember now the thorns on the bottom of the leaves on a senitive plant I had once!! There are many plants in the same family as the senitive plant. This is one of the largest:
