An easy favorite here at Plants with a Purpose, popcorn cassia fills up the air every summer and fall with the rich buttery scent of lightly burnt popcorn. Growing up to 8 feet in one year it will provide a full season of blooms even in the first year, blooming even earlier the next if overwintered where serious freezes arent expected. It is very tolerant of poor soils and fixes atmospheric nitrogen so when cut back to a foot after blooms it makes a great green manure for your soil. It is an ideal focal point plant where other ornamentals have struggled with poor soil and the scent it gives off is perfect to entice your neighbors or movie goers if planted in front of movie theaters.

Received Senna Alata (Candlestick Cassia) seeds instead of the Popcorn Cassia seeds that I ordered. I emailed the store about their error (with images) and sent a message on the online store’s chat service. Nobody replied back via email or answered the chat message (which was read).
I’ve planted both of these nitrogen fixers in the past so familiar with the seeds and also had Senna Alata seeds on hand to compare with. Will not order from this store again.
