Chamaecrista fasciculata

Common name: Partridge Pea

Native plant

Almost bush-like in growth habit, this plant has a beautiful display of bright yellow flowers with red stamens that starts in mid summer and lasts all the way until fall!  Busy bees can be found buzzing around these flowers throughout the bloom period.  Small, pinnately compound leaves add great texture to the landscape.  The leaves fold together when touched, lending to its alternative common name, "sensitive plant."  This plant is an annual, but it will reseed readily and in abundance.
