Desert Cassia




Puerto Rico


Desert cassia is a shrub or occasionally a small tree of dry and moist forests of the middle Caribbean, now cultivated as an ornamental. It is a very popular landscape tree due to its small weeping form, attaining a height of 6-15′ and a spread of 6-10′ wide. The leaves are alternate or clustered three to five at the nodes. These pinnately compound leaves have 3-15 pairs of leaflets that are 4-10 mm long. Its small leaves and moderate size makes this tree suitable for pot culture and bonsai. 

It's five-petaled 1" yellow flowers blossoms on and off year round all along the branches, grouped in axillary racemes of mostly two flowers. The legume is linear, 8-15 cm long, slightly contorted, flattened between the seeds, and dark brown at maturity.

This tree is also popular with butterfly enthusiasts, as it is a host plant for Sulphur Butterflies as well as an excellent nectar source.


The cassia tree requires first and foremost, full sunlight. On average the tree should get about 6 hours of sunlight every single day. The evergreen tree needs an abundance of sunlight to maintain the lush green foliage and keep blooming twice a year.

The cassia tree needs about 2 inches of water a week. This amount could go up in the summer if the weather becomes too hot for the soil to stay moist. Watering frequency can be twice a week. It is suited for soils which are Sandy to clay loam.

Landscape Uses

Grown as an ornamental and frequently planted along the sides of the road.

Flowering plants need access to bright sunlight to remain healthy and blooming. An easy facing balcony is the best place for the plants in Indian conditions. Try keeping them in bright sunlight but also where they get a little cover from the harsh afternoon sun. Some plants which are a little tender tend to burn due to the same.

Plants with thin leaves need daily watering and ones with thick leaves need watering 3-4 times a week. This will also depend on the season. Generally during the blooming period, plants love a lot of water. Try keeping the soil moist. During winters it is better to cut back on watering.

Keep the plants in a well drained soil with a drainage hole at the bottom. This will help to avoid over watering. Take care as to not leave stagnant water on top of the soil. Fertilise the plant once in 2-3 weeks during its blooming period. Do not fertilise it in winters.
