Description: Wild senna-this plant really strikes a pose in a wetland, low or lake/pond edge garden. The peal-like leaves and statuesque height make a statement, but when it blooms pea-like yellow flowers the beauty just shines. Then…those lovely flowers transform into thin, flat pods about 3- 4 inches long.
