Wish List: Popcorn Cassia

I was watching “Secret Gardens of Palm Beach County” (episode 608) on HGTV and saw a very interesting plant called Popcorn Cassia (Cassia didymobotrya). It had pretty yellow flowers and the crushed leaves has the scent of popcorn or peanut butter.

I wonder if these will survive in our area.

  • I like that. It just might survive there. I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t make it through the winter here. Are you going to try it?

    • I’m not sure if I’m going to try to get this plant. I doubt if it would be available around here, but I’ll keep my eye out. Right now, it’s just a plant I would like to have someday. I’m really curious about the scented leaves.
