Cassia, also known as Oriental Cinnamon, is a fragrant, exceptionally beautiful shrub with beautiful blooms and a highly prized bark used for both cooking and healing. Its yellow flowers gather together as buds and open like a sweet little sun with beckoning pistols.

Georgie’s Cassia captures the gathering and opening gesture of Cassia’s blooms (native to her Australia) in a way that also captures the sunshine growing little girls carry within.
