    Senna Alexandrina

    A small evergreen tree blooming bright yellow cup shaped flowers that accent the small leaves that cascade down on branches that droop. This plant grows to about six feet and is tolerant of moderate drought once established. Hummingbirds and butterflies love to visit this beauty. Hardy outdoors from zones 9+. Otherwise grow as a container plant and protect when temperatures are going to freeze. Add a little tropical lushness to your garden!
