I said wild quinine was unique, but so is wild senna (Senna hebecarpa, zones 4 to 8) — we're getting wild this month! A perennial that acts like a 4-foot by 4-foot shrub, it has leaves that are unique, plus the blooms feed native bumblebees and the seed heads are quite ornamental in winter. Wild senna likes moist to medium soil and full sun.

5. SightI’m cheating on sight with my last two choices, because, well, these last two plants are workhorses satisfying almost all of the senses. Wild senna (Senna hebecarpa) blooms for at least a month in mid- to late summer, and you can hear the dozens of bumblebees on the plants from 30 thirty feet away. Then the seedpods emerge — tongues covered in white fuzz. When the seedpods mature, they rattle and are still hairy, catching winter light and producing halos. A stunning plant that’s very underused.

ild senna always stops people in their tracks, primarily with its fanning oval leaves that resemble sensitive plant (Mimosa pudica). With flowers that go on and on for weeks, wild senna also stops docile and stingerless male bumblebees in their tracks, who love the pollen and nectar of its pea-like yellow blooms
