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 season. Most of the native plants we sell need a natural dormancy period and we keep them outside to naturally go through this. The plants you will receive will have yellowing, or little to no foliage left on them, but will have good roots. After planting they will continue to grow more roots so treat them like they were growing even when no foliage is visable.

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed .
