CYTISUS or BROOM

FLOWERING SHRUB. This beautiful flowering shrub is well worth cultivation and is most useful for clothing rough banks of dry or poor ground where many other plants would soon perish, but broom thrives. Its rich blossoms, nowadays in mixed colours as well as yellow, give a fine effect of colour, and by selection a succession of bloom may be obtained. Average height about 5 ft. Increase by 3 in. long cuttings of the current year’s growth in August. Good varieties include: Golden Sunlight (golden yellow); Killiney Red (reddish-crimson); Lady Moore (red and buff).
