This is a large shrub that can get up to 10' tall. Bright yellow flowers emerge from tall, unbranched spikes covered in yellow bracts in late summer and fall. This is a larvae of Cloudless and Orange barred sulphur butterflies, which feed on this and other sennas.  The caterpillars are typically yellow if feeding on the flowers and green if feeding on the leaves. It does best in full sun and once established is drought tolerant.
