Common Tree Senna


Senna corymbosa (Cassia corymbosa)


This tree is a tall, upright, fast-growing shrub with feathery leaves and a colorful display of large clusters of 1” golden-yellow flowers that can bloom from late summer to winter. It usually is evergreen in South & Central Texas but is susceptible to freezing weather. It will sprout back if pruned after a damaging cold event.

Cassia corymbosa can grow 6’-10’ tall and can easily be pruned and trained into a small canopied tree-like shape. Both heat and drought-tolerant, it is also considered deer resistant. They are trouble-free growers who can endure a certain amount of neglect. It enjoys full sun and is a significant butterfly and hummingbird nectar plant. Blooms are followed by beanlike 4- to 5-inch-long seed pods.
