Genista sagittalis


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Winged Broom. Superb shrublet from the Balkans down in to Greece that has distinctive flanged leaves and stems. This is a low growing very dense small scale groundcover and takes full sun and poor soil while being tolerant of drier conditions. In late spring, smothered in yellow flowers. We have a dandy one under our palms by the gate.
