Description: Wild Senna is a versatile plant that we think deserves more recognition as a great choice for garden or restoration projects. Its lovely, bright yellow flowers bloom July-August, attracting many bees and butterflies.  Autumn brings beautiful leaf colors and the formation of long black pods with seeds favored by larger birds like wild turkeys.  A horizontal root system provides strength against winds, allowing the plant's stately beauty to be appreciated even after the storm. Some gardeners use this sun-loving plant to form a hedge. It is not recommended for small gardens, unless you're ok with it colonizing the entire space. Wild Senna is an important host plant for many species of sulphur butterflies.
