Worley’s Butter Cream Senna

Wednesday's Story

To twirl…

Whirl, turn around, revolve, and spin on one foot with arms reaching aloft: a pirouette. Who knew a flower could do a perfect one?!

And maybe, just for the fun of it, I’ll try one myself!

points of interest

Lovely, fragrant, butterfly-shaped blooms for a fall garden. As it’s name implies, flowers are creamy yellow edged in white. After flowering, long brown pods appear. Habit is large and arching, somewhat tree-like, with blooms held at the branch tips. Ideal for the back of garden or informal screening. If a cold snap occurs, new growth will appear in spring from hardy roots. Deer resistant and carefree. Developed by Patrick Worley.

general care

Locate in full sun in well-drained sandy loam. Moderately drought tolerant but enjoys average watering. May reseed, be sure to prune after flowering to prevent seed formation and colonization if undesired.
