This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, preferably neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Ablaze with colour in late spring and early summer, when the gently arching stems of this drought tolerant shrub, are laden with a mass of white, pea-like flowers. This elegant, compact broom is often one of the first to flower, and it's ideal for a sunny, mixed border.

  • Garden care: Pinch out the shoots of young plants to encourage the development of a bushy habit. It needs to be pruned each year after flowering to ensure a bumper crop of flowers in the following year. Reduce the flowered stems to young sideshoots or low buds, taking care not to cut into the old wood.
  • Humans/Pets: Harmful if eaten
