Senna italica - Wild Senna – Caesalpiniaceae family
This is a small perennial plant growing to maybe 30-35cm in height and found in most grassland areas.
Due to a nectar substance, these plant attract many ants which may help to protect it from herbivorous insects.
Anthers have tiny apical pores; they must be vibrated at high frequency by bees to release the pollen.
Forms of cultivated Senna (dried leaves and pods) are commercially used as a purgative.The seeds are used in traditional medicine and make a passable coffee substitute and certain animals enjoy feasting on them and the pods.
