Senna splendida 'Ray's Splendor' (Golden Wonder Senna) - A small tree to 10 to 15 feet tall with 1inch wide pale yellow flowers the winter. This great small tree was given to us by Ray Sodomka as Cassia splendida. This tree is very different from what is grown by Monrovia Nursery as Golden Wonder Senna (Senna splendida). Our plant has smaller foliage and flowers and does not suffer adversely from winter temperatures like the larger flowering Golden Wonder Senna which nearly defoliates and yellows durring winter. Several people have suggested that our plant is Cassia bicapsularis or Cassia tomentosa but we have grown both of these plants in the past and 'Ray's Splendor' is distinctly different.  The information on this page is based on our library and online research as well as observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Senna 'Ray's Splendor'.
