Senna marilandica, commonly known as Maryland Wild Senna, is a deciduous shrub that grows up to 1.5 m tall and is native to the United States. The leaves and seedpods of this plant are known for their beneficial medicinal properties, serving as a cathartic, diuretic, and vermifuge. They are harvested before and during flowering, dried, and then used for later use. The leaves are particularly effective when combined with Foeniculum vulgare seeds to counteract any tendency to cause gripe. The seedpods can also be used, although they are milder in their action. In addition to its medicinal uses, the root of the Maryland Wild Senna is known for its febrifuge properties and has been used to treat heart problems and fevers. This versatile plant can tolerate drought and fix nitrogen, making it a great choice for gardeners looking for a low-maintenance shrub with impressive health benefits.
