Wild Senna (Senna hebecarpa) starter plant (dormant)


Do you have a spot with clay soil that’s hard for most plants to grow? Wild senna (Senna hebecarpa) is great one for spots like that. They get about 5ft with multiple stems. They get clusters of yellow pea like flowers in mid to late summer. A good winter interest plant too as they produce long pods and the thick stems stand up to winter weather. They like medium to medium moist/ medium dry spots that get partial to full sun. Silver spotted skippers and Sulphur butterflies will use them as a host plant.

These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Plants continue to grow roots without foliage. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. These are grown outside here in Michigan. They may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage if ordered in early fall but as fall progresses and through winter, will just be old stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot especially if heavily rooted but we prefer to rip the sides or remove and compost the fabric when planting.
