Wooden Surface

Chamaecrista fasciculata

Also known as Partridge Pea or Sensitive Plant, Chamaecrista fasciculata is fast growing, self-seeding annual that works to fill in large areas of an open garden, allowing other perennials time to establish, all while providing protection from weeds, fixing nitrogen in the soil, and providing excellent nutrients for pollinators and songbirds alike.


Butterflies such as the Orange Sulfur, Little Yellow, and Sleepy Orange use C. fasciculata as a larval host plant, and birds will enjoy the seed pods that form well into the fall months.


Fun Fact: The common name of “Sensitive Plant” comes from the way the leaf pairs fold up when they are touched!
