  1. SENNA ACCLINUS

    Bright golden yellow cup-shaped flowers open on this dwarf shrub, and later mature into 12-15cm long black pods. It is found in coastal districts and the adjacent tablelands of New South Wales from the Illawarra to Queensland, on the edges of subtropical and dry rainforest, where it is now very rare in the wild. It is a special plant because not only do two species of butterflies breed on it, the Small Grass-yellow (Eurema Smilax) and the Yellow Migrant (Catopsilia Gorgophone) but it is also very bee friendly. ...

  2. SENNA CORYMBOSA

    This attractive, fast-growing South American shrub bears racemes of bright yellow flowers on a bush which forms a broad rounded shape that responds well to pruning, when it responds with a dramatic display of its distinctive five-petaled flowers that are a magnet to pollinators. It is cold-tolerant and will take a few degrees of frost but is not truly hardy in Great Britain except in frost-free coastal areas. It does well if grown in a large container and is brought indoors in the winter to a warm glasshouse or conservatory. It can lose its leaves in periods of cold weather and all watering should stop during the winter to give it a rest. ... Learn More

  8. SIDA CORDIFOLIA

    This lovely Indian native is covered with soft white felt-like hair, the stems being yellow-green, hairy, long, and slender with heart-shaped leaves and flowers which are dark yellow, sometimes with a darker orange centre.
