Maryland wild senna

Senna {Cassia} marilandica

Maryland wild senna is a perennial flowering native that blooms in summer and grows up to six feet tall. Makes a wonderful backdrop for low-growing pollinator plants.

It prefers average to wet soil, and is native in the southeast, all the way to the southern Great Lakes.

Larval host to cloudless sulphur (Phoebis sennae), orange-barred sulphur (Phoebis philea), and sleepy orange (Eurema nicippe) butterflies.
