CYTISUS (BROOM) as a Hedgeplant

(D = deciduous leaf losing)

A good plant for light, sandy soils. It provides an evergreen effect, for the stems remain green in winter even after the leaves have dropped. The decorative flowers belong to the pea family. Plant pot-grown plants 1 to 1-½ ft. apart in winter, and trim after flowering.

Cytisus andreanus, 6 ft. Crimson and yellow flowers in May.

C.    burkwoodii, 5 ft. Dark red flowers in June. A neat bushy plant.

C.    scoparius, 5 ft. Yellow flowers in May and particularly bright green stems.
