Cytisus Sister Golden Hair® Description

Jumbo flowers on this springtime herald! Sister Golden Hair® Scotch broom (Cytisus scoparius) is a low ground tuffet that’s smothered in big, bright, pure yellow flowers in spring. It boasts the largest flowers of any Scotch broom. They obscure the neat and tiny green leaves and wiry green stems when in bloom.

Scotch broom is a tough plant with outstanding deer resistance and drought tolerance. We really like Sister Golden Hair Scotch broom planted as an edging, at the point where a wall or border turns, or mixed with flowers in a sunny, dry garden.

Special features: Deer resistant, Drought tolerant, Sun loving
