Farm Notes: Plant of the week.
American / Wild Senna (Senna marilandica)

Senna is a lovely shrub like plant that dies back in winter. It is very hardy (zone 4) and once established will survive heat, humidity and drought. It produces a shrub with green - slightly blue - leaves and bright yellow flowers on stalks that can be a foot (30 cm) in height and last about a month during the hot summer. Provided it is given a well drained soil in full sun it's fairly maintenance free and easy to grow. The flowers are lovely. It can make a great flowering hedge with little or no work. Actually likes stony soil so is an ideal way to get rid of that pile of stones you have. Plant Senna on them! The seed pods also offer winter interest for the garden. It has a strong aroma when crushed so deer and rabbits don't eat it. American senna is an ideal addition to any garden. More info.

More about natural lawns.
Tolerates heat and drought extremely well and also fixes nitrogen so it helps fertilize the plants around it. Trefoil is a low growing bushy plant that also tolerates foot traffic and cutting very well making it an ideal plant for walkways and inclusion in a lawn, or an interesting border plant. Great for hot dry areas. More info
