    Maintenance Notes: 

    Prune to shape after flowering. You may need to trim back some branches with tip die-back after harsh winters. Once established, survives in drought and heat very well.

    Drought-tolerant color and texture!

    A floriferous, low mounding selection of Genista that produces waves of electric yellow flowers in spring. Improved branching and texture make this a wonderful plant for containers and for mass plantings. Bangle has an interesting texture and is incredibly showy in the landscapes, especially when in bloom.

    • I managed a private farm in San Diego which grew Genista as a 6 to 7 foot tree. Once it bloomed we pruned branches to sell at flower market. the scent of the flower is exquisite and highly sought after.

    • It is beautiful when blooming and the foliage continues to be beautiful all season, even when the summer is very hot and dry. It is an interesting plant all season long.
