Cytisus (Scotch Broom) & Spartium (Weaver's Broom)

Scotch Brooms are excellent and easily cultivated, mostly winterhardy woody shrubs from Central Europe and the Mediterranean region eastwards to western Asia. Most species bear numerous yellow flowers on long arching branches and small, inconspicuous leaves. For any rich, well drained, sandy to rocky soil in full sun. Most Cytisus species are very drought resistant and very adaptable to various cultivation conditions. Weaver's Broom belongs to a monotypic genus with a single species only (Spartium junceum) from the Mediterranean region. It is not reliably winterhardy and best grown under frostfree conditions with a winter minimum of some 10°C.
Prior to sowing scarify seed (e.g. carefully scratch the seed coat with fine sandpaper) and soak them in luke warm water for some 48h. Sow flat in any well drained, rather sandy soil in full sun from autumn to late spring. Transplant in autumn. Very easy and fast-growing, they may gain flowering size within three to four years.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7, if not stated differently.
