Genista lydia Shrub
Genista lydia, like dwarf Genistas, is a very popular variety. This exceptional shrub has a lovely rounded form and in late spring and early summer it produces a profusion of yellow flowers, literally covering the plant to create a vibrant golden coloured dome. Genista lydia is a common sight on the dry, sunny hillsides of southern France and Spain, thriving on poor quality soils. Plant yours in poorly fertile soil to achieve the most flowers. Genista lydia is an RHS AGM winner and a great plant for a large rockery.
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. The 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: Trim Genista lydia lightly after flowering but don’t cut into old wood.See Full Description +
