Unknown astragalus(?)

Submitted by Lori S. on

I grew this a couple of years ago as Astragalus angustifolius, in order to compare to an old plant I have. It was soon obvious from the form that it wasn't Astragalus angustifolius at all. It's bloomed this year with rather attractive grey-purple flowers. Any idea what it might be?
