Quote from nel5397 :
It could be a Sesbania of some kind.
Sesbania herbacea, I believe.
The USDA resource ( plants.usda.gov/plantguide/pdf/pg_sehe8.pdf ) is quite wrong about the length of the seed pods. The following site had clear pictures and a thorough description: bwwellsassociation.wordpress.com/2014/08/24/sesbania-herbacea-arrives-in-the-falls-lake-area/
