Senna alata

The prominent, upright, bright yellow inflorescence of this plant gives meaning to several of its common names, while its species name relates to the side-wings that develop on each of its many seed pods.

Under favorable growing conditions, it can attain flowering size in less than 6 months, and it can produce large numbers of seeds that are quick to germinate with warmth and moisture, so it has high invasive potential. In Mexico, its place of origin, its ground up fresh leaves are applied two or three times a day as a paste to successfully cure fungal skin infections like athlete’s foot.
