Argyrocytisus

Argyrocytisus battandieri full sun  drought tolerant

Hailing from North Africa’s Atlas Mountains and sadly rare in cultivation, this RHS award winning, vigorous small tree boasts an extraordinary appearance that understates its surprising hardiness. Large, erect cone-shaped clusters with dense pineapple-scented lemon-yellow flowers festoon the velvety gray-green trifoliate leaves. Evergreen in milder climates, Pineapple Broom’s upright yet relaxed looking bushy habit injects a sumptuous dose of summer cheer to a warm wall, seating area or the backside of a mixed planting. It relishes regular pruning and good drainage, endures deer, poor soil, heat and dry conditions, and thankfully will not reseed. Grows moderately to 10–20' x 8–10'. Medium Band.

Size: 10' 0"–20' 0" high x 8' 0"–10' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.
