The “Lena” is an evergreen perennial. It is tolerant of many soil types and can grow in poor soil areas, however it prefers full sun.
The leaves are relatively small and palmate. In older plants the narrow and short green leaves may be noticeably reduced in number.
The blooms on this plant are of a pea-shaped variety and the colours are spectacular. In addition, they have a delightful fragrance. Depending on the amount of sun and weather, the flowers open in the months of May and June.
Like other similar Cytisus plants, it should be cut back after flowering, with anywhere from 20% to 50% of the new growth removed in order to encourage vigorous blooming the following season.
Once established, they can survive in drought-prone and coastal areas and most soil types. For this reason, they are good to plant as landscaping accents in open cottage settings and other areas where landscaping accents are desired.
They are a favorite of some of the pollinators, especially bees. And they are mostly disease and pest free.
This varietal has a shorter height than other similar shrubs, but satisfactory broom growth.
And thus are good to use in areas where a lower canopy is desired, like in an informal garden or flower border.
