Senna marilandica (Maryland Senna)

It is virtually indistinguishable from its relative, Wild Senna (Senna herbecarpa) until the 2 species have ripe seeds. The Wild Senna will readily open its pod and the seeds will fall out, whereas the Maryland Senna seed pods will stay tightly closed. For this reason, as wild turkey food, it' good to plant both Senna's; the Wild Senna will feed them in early fall as the seeds fall out of the pod, and the Maryland Senna's heavy, fibrous pods with seeds intact will sustain them during the later winter months.

Genus Cassia/Senna is a legume. Prairie Moon provides species-specific inoculum with legume seed free of charge. Inoculum will keep refrigerated for approximately 1 year.
