(Cassia) Have you ever had a plant that when you rubbed the leaves it left your mouth watering? Cassia Popcorn will do just that! Standing 4-5 foot tall (or taller in warm climates), Cassia Popcorn has stunning tropical foliage that somewhat resembles fern foliage. Beautiful stalks emerge from the foliage with black buds that pop open to bright yellow blooms. Blooming from early summer until fall, Cassia Popcorn will leave your mouth watering with the unbelievable buttered popcorn smell from its foliage. Planted in a full sun location, Cassia Popcorn is drought tolerant once established. This deer resistant annual is a perfect selection as a garden specimen or as a thriller in combination planters. If you have kids/grandkids this is a great plant to get them excited about gardening, their senses will be ‘popping’.
