Latin Name: Cassia/Senna alata
Cassia alata grows quickly and can live for several years. The yellow flower spikes that form on the tip of each branch are where the plant gets the name Candle Bush. Flower spikes typically will be 6-12 inches in height.
The plants are both a nectar source and larval host plant for Sulphur butterflies.
This species is perennial in USDA Zones 8-11. In tropical climates, Cassia alata becomes tree-like, reaching heights of 12 foot or more. In colder climates with a long-enough growing season, Cassia alata can be grown as an annual for a fall bloom. Flowers will start forming when the plant is about 4 feet tall, so it will bloom well in containers.
Cassia grows best in full sun or part shade.
