Answer: Cytissus or Scotch Broom is a spring blooming shrub that requires full sun and a very well drained, even sandy, soil. The soil should not be overly rich for best results. These plants are striking in bloom but tend to look unkempt the rest of the season so may be best planted in informal groups. Individual plants may also be shortlived or large portions of a plant may die back and the grouping helps disguise any gaps.
