General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
All our Senna's start growing the pods from the centre of the flower as soon as the flower opens. It's a thin green bent stalk in the middle. As the flower is pollinated and so dies and falls off around the stem, the pod continues to grow.
