Senna hebecarpa (Wild Senna) is a tall, busy perennial with deep green compound leaves and a large number of buttery-yellow pea-like flower clusters that begin blooming in mid-summer, and prove attractive to butterflies and other pollinators. As the summer turns to fall, the flowers then grow into long, dark brown seed pods, which add winter interest, and are attractive to foraging birds.

Wild senna can grow  of up to six feet tall, and their horizontal root systems make them able to easily stand up to strong winds, and ideal for growing in hedges.
