Senna artemisioides

Senna artemisioides is a beautiful drought tolerant shrub native to Australia.  It has showy yellow flowers in the Winter and Spring, so it's a great plant to use to diversify the bloomtime in the garden.  It also has a small green seedpod that follws the bloom which can be sheered off if desired.  The Feathery Cassia lives up to it's name with beautiful light gray feather-like foliage that stays light and airy.  It can tolerant some caostal conditions as well as withstand periods of heat in more inland climates. Senna artemisioides works very well in a Southwestern themed landscape by creating an airy background for other foreground garden specimens.  It's cold hardy down to about 20 deg. F (USDA Zone 8).  It will reach up to about 6 feet tall and wide.  Works well in full sun but can tolerate some dry shade.
