Spartium junceum is native to the Mediterranean region and Canary Islands, it is an exotic looking evergreen shrub that can reach 6-10ft tall. The erect, bright green stems are rounded (rush-like) and mainly leafless (leaves are small, short-lived). The stems branch off at the top, ending with bright yellow flowering clusters on leafless racemes. The leaves are the same bright green colour as the stems. The flowers are fragrant and pea-shaped, growing in clusters at the end of the branch ends. The flowers can reach up to approximately 1inch long and the stalks can be 14-16 inches long. It can be grown on any soil but heavy clay. The Spanish Broom has got a Mediterranean aesthetic, looking best against a brick wall. It is hardy to -10C but even if bitten by the frost, the base of the stems grow back. A fast growing plant.
