Senna corymbosa

Discontinued

Senna is a native of Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay that has naturalized itself very well to central & southern Texas. It was incorrectly named Cassia falcata, and outside of Texas known as Argentina Senna.

Senna does best in full sun and in well-drained soil, tolerating the summer heat and drought conditions quite well. Racemes of golden-yellow flowers appear in the spring and continue till the fall, attracting bees and butterflies. May experience dieback in colder winters, however will return in spring giving up to five feet of growth for the season.
