Candelabra senna is one of my favorite plants — as long as I pull up the seedlings before they get too big.
It’s literally a showstopper in my front yard, covered in six-inch spikes of yellow flowers from September to March (as long as you deadhead). And it’s not only beautiful but its the larval food for the giant sulfur butterfly, so we almost always have great big yellow butterflies soaring around the yard.
It’s considered a short-lived perennial but it grows fast enough that you’ll have blooms by the end of the first year.
Please two packages of seeds (total) per order. It’s time-consuming to collect, package and mail them, even though we really want more people growing food for themselves, caterpillars and butterflies.
