 Chamaecrista sp.
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Wild Sensitive Plant, Partridge Pea
Origin: North America
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsUnknown name

There are a great many varities of this species some of which have been considered separate species. Formerly considered in the genus Cassia.

Many ID books and botanical keys mention that the way to differentiate between Chamaecrista fasciculata and the very similar Chamaecrista nictitans is by the presence or absence of a stalk on the gland which is at the base of the leaf petioles. The best way to tell the two species apart is by the flower, which is very different in size between the two species. Vegetatively the two species are practically identical.

The yellow flowers are irregular in shape. Blooms first appear in mid spring and continue into early fall. The lower petal is much larger and more spreading than the others.

Crotalaria retusa, Devil Bean, Rattleweed, Shack Shack

Click to see full-size image Crotalaria retusa
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Faboideae
Devil Bean, Rattleweed, Shack Shack
Origin: Tropical Asia, Africa and Australia
Full sunYellow/orange flowersEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Devil Bean, Rattleweed, Shack Shack. This low growing relative of Cassias/sennas has spectacular yellow flowers followed by curios, balloon-like, rattling seedpods. It has beautiful lush foliage. Very easy to grow, not demanding and fast growing. Attracts butterflies and bees. The plant can flower year round.

This species has a symbiotic relationship with certain soil bacteria, these bacteria form nodules on the roots and fix atmospheric nitrogen. Some of this nitrogen is utilized by the growing plant but some can also be used by other plants growing nearby. The plant contains alkaloids and used medicinally in some tropical countries.

The flowers and leaves have a sweet flavor and are edible as a vegetable. Their alkaloid content is very low. The roasted dehulled seeds are eaten in Vietnam. The roots are used against coughing. A decoction of the flowers and leaves is used to soothe a cold. The seeds are eaten raw to act as an analgesic to deaden the pain of a scorpion sting. It is used for cordage and making canvas.

Used as a dye plant in East Africa.
