I remembered this delightful bush as I wondered some lesser traveled paths at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens a few weeks ago.
This plant is surely the gift that keeps on giving, as it was just covered with these shapely yellow blooms.
Some of the singles left on a stalk were real stand-outs.
Most of the plant was covered with these clusters.
I had posted images of this plant last December not knowing what it was. Fortuitously, the most recent Magnolia Newsletter had an image and identified it as Cassia.
A little plant research shows there are a number of varieties of Cassia and I’m just going to let it go at that.

These are realy beautiful, as well as a flower as for the macro shots themselves !
Thanks, Rudi, glad that you liked them!
Lovely colour and such interesting form! Great pics 🙂
Thanks, Liz! Really quite an unexpected shade as we head into winter.
All Lovely shots but the second and third are my favorites. It is in the same family and resembles the Sensitive Partridge Pea, Chamaecrista nictitans, that I see here and have in my yard.
Thanks, Steve, I had some fun getting the blossoms lined up.
Oh, that is another beauty, and interesting on the sensitivity to touch. Wonderful to have one in your yard.
