Features

Sunny spring color!

Bright gold flowers cascade down the branches of this colorful new broom. It has larger, showier flowers than other weepers. This showy plant grows well in dry, sandy soils and is a good accent plant for spring landscapes. We do not recommend this plant for the Northwest.
