Cytisus ‘Boskoop Ruby’ Broom is a compact, deciduous flowering shrub with small leaves produced on branches that give a vase-like shape to the plant. This unusual easy to grow broom plant is suitable for beginners as it is easy to grow and requires low maintenance once established. It will grow over 1 metre tall and will be resistant to drought.

About the flowers of this Broom, Boskoop Ruby blooms masses of small pea-like rich ruby-red colour flowers that create such a dazzling display, cherished by everyone. Ruby brooms are happiest in full sun and prefer well-drained acidic soil. One needs to be cautious because parts of this plant are toxic if eaten.

This is a dense hardy shrub that will look lovely if small white stone are placed around its base. It will decorate small gardens, coastal gardens and is ideal for natural landscapes. Once the flowers fade, pruning broom plants by two thirds will encourage the fresh shoots for new flowers.

Support the roots with a mulch to suppress weed and retain moisture. Add a general-purpose fertilizer annually to provide vital nutrients.

Boskoop Ruby broom shrubs have small (2 cm) semi-evergreen leaves. The shrubs will eventually turn leafless once they mature. It will keep your small garden alive and shining starting from the first warmer weeks of spring, carrying those bright red flowers every year.
