Wild Senna is a native, long-lived perennial found in the eastern third of the United States. Although it’s in the pea family, its yellow flowers are not pea-like. Plants grow up to six feet tall and bloom in summer. Plants prefer damp, fertile soils but will tolerate drier sites. The flowers are magnets to bumble bees but also attract other native bees and butterflies. Wild Senna is the larval host plant for Cloudless Sulphur butterflies. Seeds are eaten by some game birds such as quail and turkey. Excellent for home gardens, rain gardens, meadow gardens, pollinator conservation and wildlife mixes.
