The Cytisus is a variety of plant with longer stalks that hold thin green leaves of about 2 cm in length. During blooming, these stalks are filled with white, pea-shaped flowers that stretch the length of the axillary branches, essentially covering the entire plant. They have a mild scent and attract a number of pollinators.
This plant prefers more acidic soils and full sunlight. In order to get the most out of this plant it is also suggested that after the flowering season, the plant should have new growth pruned back, a recommended 20-50% of the branches. They should be trimmed early and with regularity every year, so that the older, woodier growth is not cut in later pruning.
They prefer well-drained soils, but can do well in poorer quality soils. In addition, they are hardy plants and can endure most freezing temperatures. And they are relatively disease- and pest-free.
After being established, they are relatively drought-resistant and good to use as accents in decorative rock garden areas, in medium-sized flower beds and in dry hillside areas as a landscaping plant. These plants also do well in containers.
