Cytisus scoparius × dallimorei 'Lena' (Broom) Details

“Lena” is a small, deciduous shrub grown for its pretty flowers. Masses of red, pea like flowers with yellow and cream highlights are borne through spring and summer, transforming the plant into a visual splendour. It has slender, green stems which carry small, green leaves which develop yellow tones in autumn before falling. It typically grows to 1.2 m tall and the same wide and can be trimmed as necessary. Best results with this plant are achieved when it is planted in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained site, though it is tolerant of coastal conditions, frost, cool climates, wind, and dry periods. “Lena” is commonly included in a mixed planting, grown as an informal hedge, showcased as a mass planting on a bank, or used to brighten a stark corner.
