Now that you’ve seen some dry pods and some leaflets of Lindheimer’s senna, Senna lindheimeriana, I suppose it’s only fair to show you what the flowers and buds look like. This photograph is from Great Hills Park on September 6, 2004, a day with a heavily overcast sky, but one against which my eye saw the senna flowers forming a welcomingly bright arc. The date tells you that this species normally blooms from late summer through the fall, though occasionally I’ve seen it flowering in the spring as well.
