Mysterious yellow-blooming plant--verified: Cassia marilandicacomments (6) September 7th, 2009 in gallery
This plant volunteered just behind the curb a couple of years ago. Perennial, it comes back taller each summer. This year it bloomed for the first time on Labor Day. What is it? It is about five feet tall and three feet in diameter. The leaves fold together at night. The blooms look similar to those of sweet pea.
