What is this plant with yellow blooms? I have been told it is a type of Mimosoidea, but would like to know more definitely. The blooms on this specimen were approx. 3-4 cm in diameter. I have encountered it (as is usual for me these days) in Central Europe.
My experience tells me this plant is a Cassia, in subfamily Caesalpinioides, (along with subfamily Mimosoideae in Leguminosae). But Chamaecrista (Cassia) genus is quite large. I once grew Chamaecrista fasciculata (Partridge Pea) but this is not it, on C. fasciculata the leaflets are smaller, more numerous and closely spaced. It does have the characteristic terminal twin leaflets. This one is more like C. glandulosa. But that is about as close as I can get. Others will no doubt have one in their back yard and pin it down.
