General Description
Scotch broom is a deciduous shrub native to Europe but naturalized in the western United States and other areas outside its native range. In the spring time it is known for its profusion of large, fragrant, pea flowers and named for its numerous, bright green, upright-arching branches and stems that resemble sweeping-brooms. Burkwood's broom is a fast grower that produces sprays of yellow and rose shaded flowers that mature to burgundy from late spring to early summer. They begini bright red with whispers of yellow then darken to maroon and purple-burgundy.   It is highly attractive to bees. Hairy-edged olive-green seed pods ripen in fall, then turn black in winter.
Scotch broom selection 'Burkwoodii' is very drought tolerant and excels in a well-drained sandy soil, although heavier soils curtail self-seeding. Plant as a specimen in large containers or in mixed borders, or use as a hedge on top of steep slopes and rough banks growing 3-6 feet tall and wide.. Flowers sprays also make nice cut-flower arrangements. Tolerant of wind, seashore conditions, and infertile soils.  Zone: 5
