Popcorn Cassia is well known for its bright yellow flowers and its scent. When rubbed, the leaves give off a scent just like that of freshly buttered popcorn.
Popcorn Cassia will grow to a few feet in height and blooms quite vigorously. It does well in full sun and should be planted in rich, moist, well-drained soil. The plant requires frequent watering and should be fertilized often. The plant performs well in the hot and humid days of summer. It can tolerate a very light frost, and container plants should be brought indoors when temperatures start to dip towards freezing. The plant can be over-wintered indoors.
In this video Jason gives an update on the Popcorn Cassia here at Humble Hen Farm. Popcorn Cassia will be available at the farm stand on opening day April 16, 2018.
