    It grows in the garden at The Assinboia Gardens (I think that is the name) in Winnipeg. Pretty sure it is not Lady Slipper.

    It looks to me as something in the Lupine Family. These grow wild in Florida, but are usually purple.

    I went online, put in lupine, and sure enough, it is a yellow lupine; there are purples, blues and pinks, too

    I have one of these in my back yard and now as of the weekend also in my front yard. I know it as the candlelabra. I have seen one as a beautiful big bush with these bright yellow flame blooms. They give many seed pods and thus are able to reproduce beautifully. It tolerates our southmost Texas heat very well but I do keep it watered regularly.

  • Sharon Sharon on Oct 25, 2016
    It is not a lupine or a snapdragon. It is a Cassia didymobotrya, otherwise known as "Popcorn Cassia."

    Popcorn Cassia is a member of the Cassia family. Its botanical name is Cassia didymobotrya. It is deer repellent, drought tolerant, can be planted as an annual and self seeding. Blooms are yellow, normally grow about 2 in diameter and produce a buttered popcorn scent. The mature flowers take a clustered form. A type of flowering legume / flower, it mainly grows as a perennial plant - which means it typically grows best over a long period (from 3 years+). Normally growing to a mature height of about 8 feet, Popcorn Cassia grows with a shrubby habit. This plant tends to bloom in mid summer. Popcorn Cassia is a great plant to attract butterflies, bees and birds to your garden. Kenya is believed to be where Popcorn Cassia originates from. Popcorn Cassia is normally fairly low maintenance and quite easy to grow, as long as a level of basic care is provided throughout the year. Being aware of the basic soil, sun and water preferences will result in a happier and healthier plant.

      Thank You Ann In looking at pictures I agree with popcorn plant. Thanks for all who tried to help me. I had no idea how to search for the name of this quite strange looking plant.

  • Kathy Thomas Kathy Thomas on Oct 25, 2016
    Ann, from St. Paul, I have a Cassia Tree with the same yellow flowers but it blooms in November. Is this in the same family. The leaves look like wings and will close together if you touch them and they close at nite.
