Features

Sunny spring color!

Sister Golden Hair® is not your typical Scotch broom: it grows with elegant, weeping branches that are covered in brilliant yellow spring blooms. The flowers are much larger and brighter than other Scotch brooms, making for a truly memorable display, especially when paired with colorful spring blooming bulbs like daffodils, tulips, and crocus. Sister Golden Hair Scotch broom loves sunny, dry conditions, which the bulbs also like, so pairing these plants together works visually as well as horticulturally! After blooming, its graceful green stems are covered in tiny leaves, which provide a unique textural effect. We do not recommend htis plant for the Northwest.
