Offering showy bloom over a long season, this medium-sized, open-growing shrub from the Mediterranean is considered an invasive weed in California and several other areas outside its native range. Spires of large fragrant yellow pea-flowers debut in spring or early summer and continue to appear in showy masses for many weeks. Dark brown seed pods follow the flowers. The erect, rush-like stems grow more than head-high in favorable conditions. Green when young, they mature to brown. They bear small, sparse, inconspicuous leaves in winter and early spring, giving the plant a leafless appearance year-round.
This showy-flowered shrub prospers in full sun and almost any soil. Tolerant of salt spray, it makes an excellent plant for seaside gardens. Use it in the shrub or mixed border or as a barrier hedge. Though this broom is a beautiful, drought resistant plant, it is potentially invasive in mild climates. (source:

Useful Info
GerminationSeed - pre-soak 24 hours in hot water and sow February/March in a greenhouse. It usually germinates well and quickly. The seed can also be autumn sown as soon as it is ripe in a cold frame. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle. If sufficient growth is made, it is possible to plant out in the summer, otherwise overwinter them in a cold frame and plant out in late spring of the following year.
