Botanical Name: Senna acclinis
Golden and lightly fragrant flowers appear in early summer and are visited by various native bees, the flowers are pollinated by the buzzing action on the flowers by these bees. Trees prefer rich soil, good drainage and protections from extreme heat and frost. Also called the Brush Senna, this small shrub to about 3m is an endangered native senna that is found in small populations from Gloucester to Gladstone. This is a delightful little understory plant with bright yellow flowers that is lovely to grow.

Customer Comments on Rainforest Cassia
Rainforest Senna is growing on the mountain in Mitchelton, north of Brisbane. What a pleasant surprise! Hope this plant will "lose" its endangered status. They are spectacular with their bright yellow flowers. | Naomi Hodge - Mitchelton, QLD 03-Apr-2015
