Desert Senna

Phoenix, Arizona | August-September 2022
Desert Senna

Recently, my sister identified a common wildflower that is native to the Southwestern desert. It flowers from spring to autumn. It lends color to the summer landscape when almost nothing else blooms.

I’ve seen bees visiting the flowers. There’s not much food here for them during the summer otherwise.

Arizona Poppies are summer flowering as is Bird of Paradise.

I don’t remember what Desert Senna looks like during the winter.

Desert Senna grows as a shrublet.
