Cytisus scoparius


Cytisus scoparius is the common Broom of Europe, and is well known by reason of its deep golden blossoms. There are several varieties, of which Andreanus, with reddish brown wing petals; pendulous, with a semi-scandent habit; and sulphureus, with sulphur coloured flowers, are the best. All make excellent beds. They are easily grown in light, loamy soil.
