Chamaecytisus (Escobón Broom)

Chamaecytisus or locally called Escobón are Genista-like woody, tall, evergreen to deciduous, trifoliate shrubs native of the Canary Islands and the Mediterranean. They have ornamental, axillary clusters of pure snow-white (all Canary Chamaecytisus species) or yellow (Mediterranean species), sweetly fragrant flowers, which are very attractive to bees. They prefer a humus rich, well drained, slightly moist soil under sunny conditions throughout the year. Ideal pot plants for a cool, frostfree spot (e.g. in the wintergarden), with a very rich flowering in early to late spring. Mediterranean species are fully winter hardy (USDA Climate Zone 6) in any protected, sunny spot outside.

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. If they do not swell (they should double their size), repeat. Sow flat in any rich, well drained, slightly rocky soil at some 20°C throughout the year. Keep seedlings sunny, especially in their first winter.
