Senna corymbosa

Synonym(s) Cassia corymbosa
Family fabaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z8-11)
Flowers yellow (late summer-fall)
Size 5'
Light sun
Cultural notes heat and drought tolerant

Shrub featuring yellow flowers in summer, and vibrant green leaves all season long.
In the garden, it can be trained into a small tree, or left to take on its natural form of a bushy rounded shrub. It should be evergreen through most winters in our Houston garden, where temperatures rarely drop below 20F; where the mercury dips lower, it will be deciduous, and in climates where temperatures dip below 10F it's a dieback shrub, returning from the roots in spring.
