Do you wish you lived in the tropics so you could grow pineapples? Don’t despair, Cytisus battandieri offers flowers that have a unique and delicious sweet scent of cooked pineapples! Wander around your garden and your senses will transport you to a lush, exotic tropical island.
Pineapple Broom trees have a small bushy habit and are ideal for smaller gardens, cottage gardens and confined spaces. They add a burst of colour with their bright golden yellow, pea-like flowers that are held in dense cones or plumes. The plumes appear in June and July and stand upright, against the canvas of silken grey-green foliage. They cannot be missed and bees, birds and butterflies and other pollinating insects are attracted in abundance, bringing sound and movement into your garden.
The leaves remain on the tree all year round in milder winters, making this a semi-evergreen tree. The foliage has the added attraction of a velvety feel that sets off the summer flowers to perfection.
Plant your Cytisus battandieri in full sun to get the best colours out of the flowers. It is fully hardy and will tolerate most soil types. The plant grows into a small bushy tree or shrub, with a height of 5m and a spread of 3m in a 20 year period. Light pruning will keep it smaller if space is limited.
As a holder of an RHS Award of Garden Merit, the Pineapple Broom is your ultimate summer-fun ornamental tree for a smaller garden or for a sensory garden. Plant it near to your entrance way, next to a patio where you sit, or along a garden path where visitors walk. This will allow the best enjoyment of the exquisite sweet pineapple fragrance. Relax with an exotic fruit drink in a tall glass topped by a colourful miniature umbrella and be transported to that tropical island.
