This shrub is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: light, poor to moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Masses of fragrant, golden pea-like flowers characterise this award-winning plant, which is smothered in blooms between March to April. With its silver-green, semi-evergreen leaves, this colourful specimen shrub is a great choice for winter interest. Genista 'Porlock' forms a rounded, spreading mound and will provide excellent ground cover for banks and coastal locations.

    Garden care: No regular pruning is required. Take out dead and diseased branches after flowering. Replace straggly specimens with new plants.
