Argyrocytisus battandieri

Moroccan Broom

Also known as the pineapple broom from the scent of its flowers, Argyrocytisus battandieri is a large, semi-evergreen shrub or small tree, with an upright habit when young, later more spreading. The grey-green leaves are divided into three, and covered in pale, silky hairs when young. Soft yellow flowers, strongly scented of pineapple, are borne in upright, terminal racemes from June to August, and look particularly beautiful against the silky young leaves. The flowers are nectar- and pollen-rich, very good for bees and other pollinators. It does particularly well, grows taller, and keeps its leaves better, if trained against a warm wall. Moroccan broom holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
