Velvet-leaf wild sensitive-plant or Lindheimer's senna is a bushy perennial, 3-6 ft. high. Its yellow, 1 1/2 in. flowers are borne in terminal or upper axillary, spike-like racemes. The five oval petals become crimped at the edges. The compound leaves have 4-8 pairs of oval leaflets, sometimes pointed, covered with soft hairs, and arranged spirally around the stems.

This plant is effective as a specimen or background plant in a wildflower garden. The seeds provide an essential source of food for birds.

Butterfly Host Plant: Orange-barred Sulphur (Phoebis philea)
