|Thank you for your help, I have been searching for this several weeks. |

|I'm surprised the nurseries didn't know it. Where are you located?|

|I think Broom has been classified as an invasive plant. https://www.invasivespeciesinf... |
That may be the reason why you can't find it in your nurseries. Check with your County Extension if it is on the invasives list in your county. If it is, it would be illegal to plant it.

Pretty !!! but never seen one...

|Its what we plant here in the desert. They don't take much water and they are pretty. I have never seen one reseed. Some have been classified as invasive and noxious, but as there are about 2 dozen species, I suspect some are tamer than others. I'm not sure which one grows here (it has a very weird musky smell - if you are within 50 feet of one, you know it) but it comes in bright yellow, pink and almost white.|
If I can find the tag, I will add that later.
