Notes for Identification: Source: floridata -christmas senna is recommended for butterfly gardens in central and southern florida, the gulf coast of alabama, mississippi, louisiana and texas, and most of california. The flowers are very showy. In south florida christmas senna is planted in roadway median strips and around parking lots. It does well near the coast. Christmas senna needs frequent pruning to control sprawl and to develop a strong branch system that won't break under its own weight. Larger specimens may require staking to keep them from falling over. Frequent pinching of young shoots during the growing season will encourage branching and increase the number of flowers.
