Cassia: Wow on the Yellow

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.

December Yellow

This burst of yellow called out when I passed down a narrow path on a recent afternoon at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.  The plant was large, these blooms were slightly above my eye level.

Regrettably I didn’t even look for a plant tag but did get one isolated flower, looking something like a ballerina.
