candlestick bush

Senna alata

A showy addition to any garden, large round leaves fold up at night. Large, upright, bright yellow blooms attract pollinators from spring to fall. Native to Central and South America, candlestick bush can self-seed. Plant a candlestick bush and see who comes to lay eggs in your garden!

Larval host for Sleepy Orange, Cloudless Sulphur, and Orange-barred Sulphur butterflies. Look for green or yellow butterfly larvae on flowers, leaves, and stems. The yellow flowers will attract butterflies to nectar.
