Cytisus scoparius

Also known as Common Broom, native to central and western Europe, including the British islands. Unlike the other well-known and much-used Spanish Broom, this variety requires both a sunny location and excellent soil drainage. However, it will tolerate poor, sandy soil. Flowers in late spring on old wood. *Deer Resistant* Poisonous if eaten. Photo credit: Hort Printers
