Glad to see our Lindheimer's Senna (Cassia lindheimeri) will do according to the following link..... assuming it will survive in our north Texas blackland prairie ecoregion.

From what I understand, Pigeon Pea Cassia hosts just as well, and survives cold temps as a reseeding annual.
Good luck c your Lindheimer's Cassia and keep us posted.
