I bought a buttercup bush (Senna corymbosa) and found out after looking online that its not hardy in zone 5. Will it be ok over the winter with adequate protection? I live south of Buffalo, NY. Thanks.
I planted some small wild senna plants last weekend. The bottom leaves of the plants are yellowing and I'm concerned the plants are not getting what they need to survive. The plants are located in an area with plenty of light. The holes they're in are about a foot wide/deep filled with compost soil. I've watered them until the water pooled on top a couple of times so I think they've gotten enough - I hope not too much. I'm new to gardening/planting. Is this something to worry about? How to I gauge the right amount of water? Should I use something other than compost? Many thanks.
My research shows to plant in full sun and water regularly, but make sure the soil is draining. If the soil is wet, wait until is begins to slightly dry out.
Your plants may be adjusting and will start to show signs of active growth as soon as the roots settle in.
I have a Senna in a container And have moved it in side the garage where it is warm with central heat And I’ve never owned one of these and I was wondering what the results would be
You can plant this outside, as it is hardy in your area. Now would be a good time, too. This will give it time to get established before winter.

Re your recent article about this plant.
We don't recommend specific seed vendors. I can suggest finding some through local sources, or online. There are vendors through online resources, such ad Amazon, Ebay, and Etsy.
I have been given a Popcorn shrub and it says in the instructions to plant cuttings of it. How do you do that?

Can you tell me what plant this is
It's called bladder senna (Colutea arborescens).
