Plant Species of the genus Cassia

Information about this genus
Name: Cassia
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Although hardiness varies with the species, few will tolerate repeated frosts. The general preference is for a mild climate, moist well-drained soil and a position in full sun or partial shade. Propagation is usually from seed, which should be soaked in warm water prior to sowing. Some cassias will grow from half-hardened cuttings.
Description: Once a very large genus of annuals, perennials, subshrubs, shrubs and trees, Cassia has been extensively revised in recent years and while still containing well over 100 species, it is now a far more consistent grouping of plants. The shrubs and trees in the genus are mainly evergreen and characterized by pinnate, sometimes hairy leaves and bright yellow or pink flowers that may be borne singly, in small clusters or in panicles. The flowers often appear over a long season and are followed by bean-like seed pods.
