Wild Senna, otherwise known as Senna hebecarpa, is part of the American Beauties Native Plant program. A profusion of bright golden blooms filled with pollen attracts many native bumblebees, hummingbirds, and butterflies from July through August. The attractive compound leaves appear as 5-10 pairs of oblong leaflets. Long, black seed pods are abundant in the fall and are enjoyed by many birds. As an important wildlife resource, Wild Senna is the host plant for the Cloudless Sulphur butterfly.  

Wild Senna is excellent when grown in moisture-loving areas of your garden. The horizontal root system provides stability and allows this tall beauty to withstand high winds. Grown in Hardiness Zones 4-8 and reaching heights of 5-6 ft with a 2-3 ft spread, this lovely native also supplies attractive cut flowers used in arrangements to enjoy indoors.

Wild Senna Care

Plant Wild Senna in full to partial sun for the best blooming and balanced plant structure. Wild Senna is naturally found near low wetlands, on river banks, in floodplains, and on the edges of streams, so they thrive being planted in moist, rich, loamy, well-draining soils. This native beauty tolerates sandy, clay, and rocky soils well. 

The seeded pods become mature in early fall and will naturally self-seed when planted in moist soils. Wild Senna is easy to propagate from seed disbursement, or you can divide the plant by root division in early spring. 

Wild Senna Spacing

Depending on its location and landscape application, space plants around 2-3 feet apart to accommodate its full mature width. Due to its vigorous self-seeding nature, you can expect new plantlets the following year unless you remove the seeded pods in the fall.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
