Feathery Cassia


This dense rounded evergreen shrub has an attractive, light, airy structure good for screens, mass plantings, and background plants. The grey needle-like leaves are covered with small grey hairs and contrast nicely with showy bright yellow flower clusters blooming in winter-spring, and often again in summer. Very drought tolerant but look best with moderate to regular water.
