Cassia (Senna)

Cassia or Senna is a broad genus with some outstanding, usually erect growing woody shrubs or medium-sized trees, which are all suited as container plants. They usually have trifoliate to pinnate leaves and numerous yellow to orange-yellow and pink flowers throughout summer. Several Cassia species are used as medicinal or culinary plants. They are easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in full sun. Keep plants cooler at a minimum of some 10°C in winter, keep soil drier. Some Cassia may shed most leaves and will go semi-dormant in winter. Plants which have become to large may be cut back easily in spring before new growth. Pots or small containers of 10 to 20 liters shall be sufficient for all species.
Sow flat at a minimum of some 20°C in any leafy-sandy, well drained soil in a sunny spot. Seeds will germinate erratically in some 2 weeks to 3 months.
