Cytisus Goldfinch Shrub

£5.99 each

  • Hardy Perennial - sow indoors or on a seedbed (April-June); transplant later to flower for many seasons

Cytisus ‘Goldfinch’, commonly called broom, is one of the best spring-flowering shrubs for a sunny border. The wand-like branches are smothered in red and gold pea flowers that give a superb and colourful display at a time when many shrubs are not yet in flower.

Cytisus ‘Goldfinch’ looks superb when planted with spring bulbs such as daffodils and tulips and wallflowers that compliment the broom’s colourful flowers. Grow Cytisus ‘Goldfinch’ in any moderately fertile, free draining soil. Broom flowers best in a sunny site, and the plants will cope with poor soils.



Dig a hole large and deep enough to take the plant’s root ball.

Gently tap the plant out of its pot without disturbing the soil around the roots.

Position the plant in the hole so the plant’s crown is level with the surface and sits at the same depth as it was in the pot; make sure the roots are in direct contact with the soil.

Backfill with the excavated soil and firm in gently.

Water to settle the soil around the roots.


Watering: Water regularly in the first few weeks after planting but don’t overwater. These drought tolerant plants will send their roots down in search of moisture as they grow.

Feeding:  Give plants a boost if necessary with a handful of granular feed hoed into the soil in spring.

Pruning: Prune after flowering; cut back to a side shoot low down on the plants, to encourage next year’s flowers and keep plants neat, but don’t cut into old wood.
