Genista tinctoria

Genista tinctoria

dyer's broom

Common name dyer's broom
Family fabaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-7)
Flowers yellow (summer)
Size 2-3'
Light full sun
Cultural notes well-drained soil on the dry side. doesn't mind poor soils

This member of the legume family sports yellow racemes of pea flowers from summer into fall. Our single flowering plant (one of a crop grown from seed last year) is still small - expect a more impressive photo next year.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
