Easter Cassia

Native to South America, Easter cassia is a vigorous shrub that bears clusters of bright yellow flowers. Easter cassia is a prolific seeder, and its seedlings come up in bushland, disturbed areas and roadsides. As it grows, Easter cassia smothers native vegetation. It is common in many areas of coastal Queensland and northern New South Wales.

Propagation

From Late Summer TO Early Winter

This species reproduces by seed only. This plant spreads by reseeding itself. Seeds are dispersed by water and animals that eat the fruit (e.g. cattle). Soaking the seeds overnight before sowing improves germination.

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in any type of soil as long as it is moist. Plant in full sun or partial shade. It will self seed thus care should be taken when planting if you do not want it to spread and seed heads should be removed to prevent self seeding.
