Genista (Broom)

Genista or Broom include some excellent and easy going shrubs with numerous yellow (sometimes white or rose) flowers. They are suited for any sandy to rocky soil in full sun. Most are very drought resistant and very adaptable to various cultivation conditions.
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, gaining flowering size within two to three years.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7, unless not stated differently.
