Feathery Cassia

Senna artemisioides

A delicate appearance -- thanks to feathery cassia's needlelike foliage and branching structure -- might make you think this desert plant requires special care, but that's hardly the case. It survives on just two deep irrigations or rains a year and thrives when watered about every other month. In fact, too much water is detrimental, changing the plant's rounded, upright form to floppy and lackluster.

Feathery cassia is covered with blooms from winter through spring. The pealike yellow flowers are followed by papery seedpods. Plant feathery cassia in mixed borders, foundation plantings, and curbside areas where the soil is dry and the plant receives full sun.
