The picture inside that blog may be Sesbania grandiflora. Moringa leaves look rounder.

Whoever wants moringa leaves or even cuttings can take from me. I have a huge tree and I want to trim it down. It grows very easily from cuttings. Takes about 3 weeks and is very hardy.
The flowers stir-fried are also quite tasty. So is the tender bean when stir fried and cooked with mustard paste.
