SENNA hebecarpa (Wild Senna)
Wild Senna is a root crop that we believe deserves more attention as a perfect addition to any garden or restoration project. It has beautiful, bright yellow flowers that bloom from July to August and attract a lot of bees and butterflies. Autumn brings vivid leaf colors and the development of long black pods containing seeds that larger birds, such as wild turkeys, prefer. This sun-loving plant is often used as a fence by gardeners.
