Wild Senna offers a profusion of buttery yellow flower clusters atop lush green foliage in midsummer. The dark brown seedpods are a favorite of birds, and add great winter interest, too. Fond of clay, it thrives in medium to moist soils, and tolerates periodic flooding. The horizontal root system provides stabilization against high wind velocities, making this tall sun-loving plant an excellent hedge choice. An exceptional plant for pollinator support, Wild Senna is also a host plant for the Cloudless Sulphur and other butterflies.
