Laburnum

(deciduous leaf-losing)

Laburnums thrive in any soil. They grow-rapidly from seed, although sometimes they are not very long-lived. Plant from October to March.

Laburnum alpinum (scotch laburnum), 15 ft., yellow flowers in June.

L. anagyroides (common laburnum), 20 ft., one of the joys of the spring garden with its golden-yellow pea-flowers which are borne very freely in May.

L. vossii, 20 ft., a hybrid that bears trails of flowers 9 in. long in June.

There is also the most unusual graft hybrid between a cytisus and a laburnum: Laburnocytisus adami, 20 ft. or more; the flowers, borne in spring, may be the purplish flowers of the cytisus, the yellow flowers of the laburnum, or the purplish-pink flowers of the laburnocytisus.
