Features

notes

Providing a firework display of colour in the spring garden, the pretty, pea-like flowers of Cytisus praecox Allgold burst into life along the length of its arching stems and are marvellously scented. A deciduous, compact bush with inconspicuous leaves, it is also an early pollinator, beloved of bees. A recipient of the RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence in the garden.

Insights

The common variety of Broom is native to Britain where it grows, as it does in Europe, Asia and North America, in open heathland or in hedgerows, blooming from late spring. This variety flowers sooner, the praecox in its name simply meaning early.

Details

Flowers: February to May

Planting
  • Moist, well drained soil
  • Full sun
  • South, west facing
Care

Still very much in touch with its roots, this Broom needs very little attention other than annual pruning after flowering. Cut out dead, diseased or damaged stems and trim back to allow air flow, for shaping and to encourage flowers next year. Do not cut into old wood.

Please note, parts of this plant are toxic by ingestion. Irritant to skin and eyes, wear gloves.
