Candlelabra Tree: Senna Alata: A Lotta Seeds Started
This afternoon the weather was wonderful and in the 70s and I started some Candlelabra Tree seeds from a bunch of pods I collected and dried from last summer. This fast growing tropical plant can grow into a small tree in one season here, and I love it as do our butterflies. It is called many names such as Candlelabra Tree, Candlestick Bush, Golden Candle Tree, Emperor's Candles, etc., and in Latin often classified as cassia alata or senna alata. It makes a lot of seeds and I will share babies from the flat I planted today.
